"WY elk hunt follow up"

Just wanted to follow up on my WY hunt. I asked for and got lots of good info on here before the draw and followed up some afterwards as well. Plenty of help from good people on here. I had an awesome day in the woods. I planned my vacation so that I could hunt the last 10-11 days of the archery season coming from TN and also had some time off in Nov if need be for the return trip for rifle. I went out this summer and scouted several areas with my 13yr old son and we hung some cameras and learned our way around a little. I went back on Sept 18th to start hunting the morning of the 19th at my number one spot. I got in there and heard my first bugle a few hundred yards away right at daylight. I didn't kill that bull but heard lots of bugles and was into elk most of the day. Caught up with this guy about 4pm. Made a good shot and he ran about 4-500 yards and piled up. Not the biggest bull I saw but a great bull none the less. Then the work began! I was alone and not quite 3 miles from camp. Lots of work to break one down and cape him out and pack him out alone. Fun times though! Heaviest load was 124.4lbs. Hauled him out using my Exo K3 4800. Pack did great. Bow was Prime CT5 at 30" draw and using Easton Axis 5mm Match grade with iron will collars and the Sever 2.1" head. Arrow weight was 540 grains and speed was 273fps. Very pleased and happy with this set up. My first archery elk and my first solo backcountry trip. First time to hunt the Elk rut and it was magical even if I was only out there for one day basically. Here are a few pics. My buddy showed up the next day (of course!) and we spent a few days looking for a cow for him and just goofing off in the woods. Had a blast.

Any way you dice it that sounds like an incredible adventure!
Certainly for a novice, the end results would be very hard to beat.
Congratulations on making the most of a rare opportunity.

Nice bull. The picture quality is outstanding. You cut up and carried a bull out 3 miles by yourself in one day, one load being 124 lbs. Dude, you are a beast! Put 124 lbs on my back on my best day and I wouldn't be able to get my legs under me.

Congrats.

Thanks for all the posts guys! It was a great hunt and memories of a lifetime. As far as packing him out and everything, that part was not easy at all but certainly part of the allure to me. I worked hard to get in better shape and was able to handle it without too much trouble.

However, Iím not sure Iíd rent myself out for packing! Ha.
