|Eric Hunt’s 2011 Archery Utah Bull|
Our good friend, Eric Hunt, sent us an email about his 2011 Utah Archery Elk Hunt. Eric is a great guide & hunter. He killed a giant desert mule deer that was featured in the 2012 Arizona ORG. Here is a little synopsis of his 2011 Utah Archery Elk hunt.
“I found this bull the first morning I was hunting, but I was unable to get into range. I hunted hard for 9 days, with many awesome encounters but no shots. On the 9th morning I found a great bull with cows moving away from me. I stayed with them for 5 miles, when the bulls started bugling in every direction. My bull came from the left and an intense fight broke out in front of me. It lasted just a few minutes. I wasn’t able to get a shot because the cows were hung up between us.My bull ended up winning the fight and ran the original herd bull off. I stayed with the herd and was able to put an arrow in him at 30 yards. He held up and I quickly put another arrow in him when he stopped to look back. He crashed less than a 100 yards from me! It was an Amazing hunt & I had a great friend, Scott Wood, helping me along the way.”
