Congratulations Campbell.

Hunting for Bull Elk in the US is something special. Would recommend it to anyone. Just to hear the Elk bugling was magical. Having a contact in the US would be a big bonus. Much easier to get a bow hunting tag than a rifle tag.
Would really like to go back sometime soon for maybe a bigger Bull and/or some other species or maybe just tag along as the cameraman for Simon Bís next overseas venture Smiley Smiley Smiley

Great stuff Campbell - that's worked out pretty much perfectly hasn't it!! 

Very happy for you, but pretty jealous too (will be years before my kids are old enough to allow me to do that)!

Did the bull Elk run quite far?

Been looking for this report!  Glad to see you scored- twice to boot!  That is a nice bull.  Your friend with the horses is a lifesaver.  Elk are big animals and packing meat out is a serious chore.  We consider a big elk like that 6 trips to get out.  Could be done in 5 heavy packs.  In truth, I am most impressed you got on antelope.  Usually takes people a few years to get one with a bow.  Wyoming has a lot of antelope.  Congrats!

Battson - yip he headed down hill a bit, but still got the horses right to the bull.

AJ - Sure was a magical trip.† In Wyoming the bow only tags are actually more difficult to get as they allow you to hunt a month earlier than rifle tags.†

Silentelk - yeah, the horses were a big part of the trip.† Riding to and from the hunting spots was a real adventure for this kiwi Cool† I know what you mean about the pronghorn, they were a huge challenge with the bow.† A very difficult but rewarding hunt.

Ripper . . . fantastic to take that elk with the bow, sounds like you were at full draw for a while (big ups to your USA mate too)
Great photo.

And, like the others said, a more extended write up/more photos is in order cos it sounds like a great trip!

cheers for posting.

Wow, really great report.

I'm very jealous as I cant even hunt rabbits legally up here.

Great pics.

Awesome hunt!

This is one of my dream hunts to do just what you did.
Hunting Pronghorns by stalking with a bow and hunting Elk with a bow and using horses.

Hopefully I will be able to do it one day, and if I am, then I hope I will do as good as you did.

Congrats and very well done!

Thanks for sharing with us.

Just had another look at your photos CB14. You should be giving yourself a massive pat on the back, really impressive that you picked up a bow the year prior with a goal in mind. Then go out and get it done. Well done  Cool

Wow, this is some awesome inspiration.  What is the bow season typically in the US?  I'm heading over to vegas in July, so I've been thinking of taking the bow along....
