"Trophy Arizona Bull for Chris"
Photo provided by: Chris Beck

Chris Beck writes, "Here is my first elk ever harvested. It was taken on Oct 3rd. The 6th day of a very tough 7 day hunt. The high temperatures and full moon made for tough, tough hunting conditions. After 4 unsuccessful days I moved to a completely different area and was glad I did. We found this bull first thing in the morning and the hunt was on. The limited vegetation made for a very fun, exciting but challenging, stalk. After he and his cows bedded I was able to make my final move to get into position for the shot. He was bedded quartering towards me and I opted to wait him out. 1.5 hours later he was up and 2 rounds at 345 yards from my 300 WSM was all it took. Bull down. My taxidermist scored him at 316. It was a great morning."
