Pennsylvania Game News - November 2019 - 15

As the sun was coming up, we saw
movement 300 yards out, and soon could
see three of the bulls, but the two largest
were not with them. Somewhat perplexed,
we waited things out. And after about
20 minutes, the big boy showed up just
50 yards away, staring right at us, steam
piping from his nostrils.
We backed out, hoping we could get
close again the following morning.
While it was rainy and foggy when
Carey picked me up in the morning, the
wet ground made for a quiet sneak to our
spot. We approached from a lower vantage
point, far to the right, thinking that if the
bulls were there and if the dominant bull
was off on his own, we wouldn't walk too
close and bump him.
Steve and my dad stayed back from the
field. And, as we approached, we could
see all five bulls were back, though we'd
have to wait for enough light to shoot.
I set up my shooting sticks awhile,
and after a half-hour passed, visibility
improved and Carey asked if I was ready.
"Your bull is the second from the left,"
he whispered. "On my count of three: One
. . . two . . . have at it."
"What?" I asked.
"Have at it," Carey hissed.
"I don't know what that means, but I'm

shooting," I said.
I hit the bull hard with the first shot, but
a second put him down for good.
As I walked up to the bull, I couldn't
believe how big it was - both its body and
its rack. Carey said it would score well,
but I felt blessed to have this incredible
opportunity at such an awesome animal.
It took eight of us and a large game cart
to get the bull out.
And when we got back to camp, an
extremely excited Annabelle said coming
along on the hunt was the best thing she'd
ever experienced.

Unforgettable Season

Months before my elk hunt, my friends
and I talked about a Quadruple Trophy
season - taking a buck, bear, turkey and
elk, all in the same license year.
With my bull and buck tags now filled,
I stayed in Elk County to hunt turkeys,
and with a fresh snow on the ground
Friday morning, I called in and harvested
a 10-pound hen.
However, while I cut four different
sets of bear tracks in the snow during the
extended season in Susquehanna County,
WMU 3C, I didn't run into any of the
bears that made them.
It was an incredible hunting season
nonetheless.
And when I had my bull elk officially
scored after the 60-day drying period, I
learned just how incredible it was. The
bull's final Boone & Crockett score of
388-1/8 inches makes it the new No. 1
entry in the Typical Firearms category
in the Pennsylvania Big Game Records
book.
The 7-by-8 rack has a near 46-inch
inside spread, 55-inch main beams,
21-inch G-4s and good mass throughout.
My 2018 hunting season is one I won't
soon forget.
