All of the CO people are dying to know if that's a 5" browtine and therefore a legal bull in CO, if it is it should definitely go on the "is this a legal bull" thread.Bonus story:
I also have 2 buddies from arizona at my house staying in the camper since the 3rd who have elk and deer tags for the river bottom by the house. They have seen lots of deer, but only doe in range so far. One guy was full draw on a doe this morning but decided to wait since he has until the 15th to hunt. Also saw a small bull this morning with no shot. This afternoon he arrived at the treestand and was pulling his bow up and heard a snap looked over and saw an elk. He pulled the bow up the rest of the way and shot him at 45 yards at 6pm. The bull went 75 yards or so and he watched him fall. I called my buddies son and him and cousin met me at the parking area and we made short work of him.

Other buddy hunting river bottom got a flat tire on his bicycle on way in tonight and fixed that and didn't make it to the stand.
That’s been a common complain as long as the hunt has existed; decent sized unit, not a ton of people, lots of wilderness/roadless country and everyone in the same spotWe saw 14 different hunters out of only 40 tags in and out of the drainage we were based out of. This is not my idea of a wilderness hunt to many roads in that area.
A guy I knew went on a guided hunt years ago and wanted to go into a hell hole in NM. The guide told him it would be a “salt and pepper bull”You guys laugh. It could be true. You don’t really understand an “oh #*^@#*” moment till you’re looking up out of one of those holes.
