I was lucky enough to draw out a Navajo Nation any elk tag for January, in years past I've drawn the cow hunts on the rez, which have been really good. Well my hunt was a big success I was able to put down my very first bull elk. My tag was for any elk and I kept telling my Brother in law, who was with me, I was going to shoot the first elk I see. I wouldn't I have guessed that I would see a big bull first, God gave me a chance and I took full advantage of it. Not only did I kill a beautiful elk, he died 15 yards away from a wood hauling road. My brother and I muscled him in the back of my truck and took him back home whole. I am blessed and so happy that I got to experience my first bull, and got a lot of meat from out of it. The fun part was driving home 3 hrs with that big rack in my rear view mirror. Well thanks for reading and I wish you all luck in the big game draws coming up.

Also there is a NM Bull Zia hat in one of my pictures. The brand is "Game ON" a local graphics designer from Farmington,NM. I love their shirts and hats.

Beautiful bull NavajoHunterNM. If you are going to shoot bulls that big, you better buy a truck with a bigger bed. ;) Nice hat design as well. Looks like they could have used your bull as their inspiration of the design. Any plans for the use of the hide? Should make a couple nice pairs of gloves.

Thank you I left the hide behind. Just took the meat and head home.
