I thought some of you guys in the mountains might like to see what we have roaming the hills here on the coast. I will try and update this as the season progresses. Right now I am trying to locate a big bear or two to hunt come April 1 but all I had of interest today was this Roosevelt bull. Glad to see he has survived the winter! I got a pic of him last summer and managed to call him in during archery season on accident. I was standing in the middle of the wide open like an idiot and I looked up and he was on a dead run towards me. I tried to act invisible but it didn't work. I clearly remember the kickers off each side as he ran straight away...

Joe,

How much do you think that bull weighs? Those are big old animals for sure.

He looks a little skinny coming out of winter but I bet by August he would be 1,000 lbs.

Here is a pic of the biggest bull I've ever got on came and he is fat and happy. This bull broke his skull (I assume in a fight) and showed up sick in somebody's back yard and died. I lost a lot of sleep hunting him for several years.....they make very few mistakes when they get that old!

I won't post too many old ones but I really like this wallow action. These two young bulls battled for over an hour and one broke a tine before they were done. I had hundreds of pictures of them...

That thing is massive! cool pics fighting in the wallow.

His body is so huge it doesn't do the antlers justice. I held his sheds and they were huge! Given an average spread he scored 355 that year which was his peak. I have pics of me with his sheds from three years in a row. I've never wanted to kill an animal so bad in my life....

Today was the first day of bear season and I was sitting watching this meadow exactly 24 hours after this little bear came thru. I would have passed as it looks pretty small but I would have liked to seen it tonight.


A little bull still packing two weeks ago....
