Mathews Bags My Biggest Yet

September 16, 2004 by Kevin Lane

Heading 3.5miles back into my elk area, in the early season. It rained almost every single day, but on this day it didnt matter. I came upon a cow in the trail 40yards, broadside wind coming in my face, I froze before the cow saw me. She looked up, and I waited till she started to feed again.
All of a sudden from down the hill I heard a bugle about 70yards, so I clipped onto my Mathews Ultra, the cow looked back up at me, the wind is still blowing in my face.
All of a sudden a LOUD bugle from up the hill about 50yards away. My heart was pumping, all of sudden the cow starts walking down the hill. Then I heard the bull that was up the hill start coming down the hill right at me then all I saw was horns everywhere.
He stopped quarting to me at 15yards. I placed a perfect shot right behind the shoulder. I cow called as the bull trotted in front of me, it calmed him down. He went about 60 yards and I heard one big crash and that was all.
As I made my way towards where I heard the crash I saw the horns of the bull. He wasnt moving so at that point I counted the horns and pinched myself. Before my eyes was this massive 7×7 bull elk.
The bull scores 360gross. Havent had a chance to get him officially scored yet.
