Ky Elk Hunt
« on: October 03, 2017, 02:02:00 PM »
Retired this year and got drawn for an Archery Bull Elk tag for Eastern Kentucky. Which is where Im from originally, been living in the flat lands, Western Ky,so long both my legs are the same length now. Hunted hard for two weeks. Had some close encounters but the wind change busted me several times. However God took over and put me in the right place at the right time. Called in a 6x7 made a shot on him , on the move from 15 yds. Hit was about the second rib from the rear quartering forward. Got both lungs. Actually I don't even remember the shot. The bull moved to my right down a very steep back. I had one opening. I remember looking at the side of the bull starting my draw and then the next image I recall was the big guy running away with about 5 inches of arrow showing. I figure I got at least 25 to 26 inches of penetration. We trailed him about 200 yds. Actually walked passed him about 15 yds. He went down along side a logging road over in a weed patch. Guy with me had a score sheet an a tape so we roughly scored him. got a gross of 305. So even with deductions he should easily make P&Y. I will attempt to post a few pics. Used a recurve pulling 51 lbs at my 29 inch draw. Arrow was 580 grns. 2 blade single bevel broadhead.

Try using the BBcode to post your pix. It worked for me. You can preview your post to see if the pix are there.
