All that scouting and obsessing over elk all summer paid off with me being able to tip over this OTC public land bull a little over an hour into opening morning.

On the walk in heard a bugle then a second shortly after and I moved towards it. Then heard one about 45 minutes later that I kinda thought was a hunter. In the mean time I was still hunting and soft calling as I worked through the timber. Windy morning made it perfect for that. Shortly after that he bugled and was closer and growly so I knew he was an elk for sure. He was kinda headed my way and I headed his way. Eventually caught glimpse of him but couldn’t tell for sure he was the bull as I also heard a cow in front of him he was pushing. He moved past so I quickly paralleled him and once moving up and in front of him a bit I cow called and bugled and you could see him through the timber as he turned on a dime and ran into 20 yards. Stopped frontal and I was sitting down and solid and hammered him right square in the chest with the 338 win mag. Second shot hit a tree but third shot piled him up as he was running no more then 15 yards from the first hit.

I’m on cloud nine as I happily shoot the first legal elk I see which usually is spikes. Never imagined I would be done so quick and to have a bull bugling. They are usually pretty quiet as there is lots of pressure in the area

I’m a Remington fan too although my 338 is actually a ruger 77. My dad had a Remington 700 on 338 I would love to have some day
