Lucky 25

October 25, 2010 by Pete Carney

After applying unsuccessfully in Utah for 24 years I finally drew the tag of a lifetime on the 25th try! On September 3rd 2010, after 14 straight days glassing, stalking and working bugling bulls I finally took a rest day to sit a wallow. I had been teased by 5 different bulls, bugling all around me continuously for 10 1/2 hours when the Yodeler Bull as I had named him, finally snuck in for a drink. After a long wallowing session he stood and I slipped my video camera back in my pocket. At just the right moment he stopped to face a challenger bugling from behind the wallow. This gave me a perfect 35 yard quartering away shot. My Drenalin LD delivered the pinpoint perfect blow that had him down in-sight, only 38 yards from the wallow! Here’s the YouTube video of all the bulls I filmed on my hunt including the Yodeller in the wallow. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6IvbdM4r-cQ I thank the Lord for a truly once-in-a-lifetime adventure on a once-in-a-lifetime bull.
