    Big thanks to Jerry Stacy and the Lost Mountian crew. My son was drawn for and Bull archery tag. Due to an injury and surgery he was given a crossbow exemption. The Doctor just cleared him last week. Jerry has been very informative and helpfull during the entire episode. We started hunting at first light (12/29/12) and were on Bulls almost immediately. We found a group of six with two shooters in them . Shadowed them for about 30 minutes. A 38 yd shot presented itself and 30 minutes after the hunt begun, we had arrowed a majestic bull elk. The largest of the group. Shortly after, we were standing over his prize( 4x5). We saw two different groups 40 elk. The only regret wish it could of lasted longer, beautiful country incredredible animals. I believe Jerry said they are 24 for 24 on bulls.

    Nice bull !!!! If you get one of these tags and not local to the elk zone, the guide is the way to go, its much better to have these memories than an unused tag.
