Congrats on the success! I guess if you have access to horses I can't deduct any cred points for using them.

Good work man. It's tough hunting solo let alone breaking down an elk solo.

I've found over the years that when you tell someone where you are going they are just looking for info on where the animals are. So now if someone asks I tell them a draw or two over from where I will actually be. Getting burned sucks!

Congrats on the solo success! Sounds like an adventure. Any bull elk solo is worth more cred than I can count.

Great adventure.
Although I'd be apt to dock a few cred points for thinking that other general season any bull elk hunters would not pursue bugles. The mistake they made was telling a stranger they wouldn't hunt bugling elk- I'd wager when they said that they hadn't heard the bugles?

At any rate, you killed a good bull on a $50 tag- better than many guys did on their LE tags. Congrats.

5 point, 10ish miles in with horses. Yeah, I'm down with 1,000 gold. That's awesome man! Breaking down a bull solo is no easy task...good idea using those ropes.

B/t/w, you look way too young to be talking about getting old 😉

Awesome hunt. You just got to plan on other hunters doing stupid things on a general season hunt lol. I always make sure to be the first out so I dont walk into my area and find someone sitting there. I also like to let the other hunters push animals to me if I can. I love to sit on saddles and other escape routes on opening mornings and other busy mornings for this very reason. Those horses are beautiful and I am terribly jealous. I want horses one day

Very nice! Glad you got one down. I've broken down a Cow Elk by myself before. Definitely a task. Cred points well deserved. I sure woulda liked to have those horses on my pack out though. Aargh!!!!!
