Wyoming Bow Hunt - report added
Sep 22nd, 2015 at 2:47pm
Print Post  
The trip planning started way back late last year.  I spent a lot of time researching and importantly understanding the hunting regulations for a few of the elk hunting states i.e Utah, Montana, Colorado, Oregon and Wyoming.  Wyoming seemed like the best bet as it didn't have OTC tags, which I liked as I thought it would keep the hunter numbers down a bit, and I knew the scenery was fantastic. 

After winning an elk and pronghorn tag my trip plans were finalised.  A cheap flight took me first to Brisbane and then to LA and finally to Salt Lake City.  SLC is a great place, not too big and surrounded by beautiful desert and mountains.  I took my time driving to Wyoming to meet a mate that I would be hunting with.  I spent a couple of days visiting Grand Teton National Park and saw bear, elk, fox, moose and some very impressive mountains.  No need for an alarm clock as the wolves woke me early and I was not sleeping in after knowing they were looking for breakfast haha

I spent the next 4 days trying for a pronghorn with my bow. Many people had told me this would be difficult and they were right!  I would have averaged 3 stalks a day with out success.  Pronghorn have incredible eye sight and they continuously rotate their head so basically have 360 degrees covered.  So with a bow they easily see you when you get close, range, draw and shoot. 

I did find a spot that provided good cover.  A dry 4 meter deep drain / creek allowed me to sneak undetected to a regular feeding spot.  One evening a saw a lone buck out feeding (single animals make getting close much easier!).  He was one that had eluded me previously at the exact same spot. I got to the point in the creek that would allow me to pop up and be 30 yards from the feeding buck.  This time the plan worked and I looked over the lip (at full draw) and he was head down feeding.  I made a good lung shot and he walked 20 yards and lay down.  I left him there until morning. 

I got back at first light and he was at the same spot frozen solid.  I gutted him and chucked him in the back of hire car, luckily no blood on the seats haha.  I took him back to my mates place and we butchered him. 

The elk hunt started on the opening day for archery.  My American mate was a fantastic host.  We set up an awesome camp which include the iconic canvas tent and a corral for the horses.  First light of opening day we took the horses an hour from camp.  We then heard 3 bulls bugling which was definitely a trip highlight.  We called in the first bull and got him to 30 yards.  I messed up the stalk and he saw movement and took off.  While a little disappointed I was hoping the next bull would be bigger.  He looked like a fairly young 5x5 bull. 

A second bull was bugling hard out so we decided to go take a look.  My mate stayed back and did a prefect job to bring him into bow range.  He was moving quickly and I could see him coming in so I drew my bow. Then he stopped behind a tree at 30 yards.  I couldn't get a clear shot so waiting with the bow at full draw, may be a minute later he stepped out and I took the shot.  He was shot and headed straight down the hill. 

Now this is were the horses come in.  Once we got to the bull we got a few photos and butchered the bull and loaded up the horses. I enjoy the carry in New Zealand but this bull was huge.  Also at 10,000 feet the air is bloody thin.  It was a great experience using the horses and highly recommended if you get a chance.  My knees were also grateful for the light load back to camp.

I'm getting both the bull and buck shoulder mounted in the US and sent back to NZ.

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 B’s 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.

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

Very very cool, Now I understand, Amazing to see your bow hunting results Cam,  I looked at getting into Bow hunting, but I seem to struggle being left handed and unco-ordinated, never mind my now even more clumsy attempts at bush stalking.

I'm not sure how tall he is. I'll measure him tonight and let you know. I guess you just measure from the base to tip?

Kinda.  Start at base near the eye.  Measure up to the fork and then up and around to the point staying on the outside of the antler.  I found a link.  Check out post #11.  Measure the white line.  http://onyourownadventures.com/hunttalk/showthread.php?239425-Antelope-Length-me...

Anything over 13" and better are nice animals for bow.  Anything over 15" is very nice and over 16" is excellent.  they don't get real big in my region.  Top out around 15 to 16" with the very rare 17".  In some parts of Montana and New Mexico, an average goat might be 15" with 16" good and 17-18" excellent.  Thinking yours might be 14.5" if were to guess.  Looks tall in that picture.

My numbers are in inches but CM works too.  Use a string if you don't have a thin metal tape measure.

I ran the tape over the horn and its about 14 inches.  All of the bucks I saw during my hunt were smaller than this one (as far as I could tell anyway) so stoked to get this one.

While packing my stuff for this years trip I found a note with the pronghorn score my mate did.  The pronghorn is 76 Pope and Young.  The elk is 272 Pope & Young.
