Colorado Elk – 2006
Hair-raising bugles filled the air this past September in the mountains of southern Colorado as me and my good friend, Ben Maki, of Mossy Oak bowhunted for trophy bulls. Ben and I both connected on great bulls, his a straight6×6 and mine a 6x little nubbin’ 7. We captured incredible footage of my bull stomping in to 12 yards only to hang up there for nearly 10 minutes (thankfully the wind stayed in our favor) while he ripped off powerful bugles. Finally, in the midst of all this elk hunting drama, he quartered away and offered me the chance I’d waited for. I arrowed him perfectly as legendary filmmaker Mike Eastman captured every intense second on video for our television show, Eastmans’ Hunting TV.
