Steve Desmarais writes, "Had some highs and lows, but found the bull Wednesday before the hunt. Tried to find him Thursday and Friday with no luck. Opening morning I went in looking for him and found him running away from us with a herd of 12 other bulls. They ran down the mountain towards another hunter and stop 50 yards from him broadside. The hunter shot and a big bull went down. To far away to see if it was the bull I was watching, but thought it would have to be him. I was sick. I spent the next 3 days looking for a bull close to that caliber with no luck. Went back to the last place I saw him and found 3 bulls feeding in the same area. Decided to hike in for a better look and found one of the three bulls was the bull I had been watching. We stalked within 150 yards and put the hurt on. Could not believe I got a second chance. It was great to share the hunt with my H.C.O. family and friends."
