Giant 6×6 Bull Elk

When you think of elk hunting, one immediatly dreams of a giant 6×6 bull elk.  Big 6 point bull elk are the icon of the species & everyone in the elk hunting world puts them on a pedestal. When Jennifer Jones finally drew her early rifle bull elk tag, her & her husband (David) put in a ton of work with her .28 Nosler, in anticipation of settling the crosshairs on a giant bull.

After several days of elk hunting during a slow rut, we finally found the icon of elk. As light was fading we were able to close the distance & Jennifer put two great shots into the giant elk. It was an unreal moment for everyone to walk up to a truey rare 400″ 6×6 bull elk.

 

As mentioned above, Jennifer put many rounds thru her .28 Nosler prior to her hunt, she was prepared & ready to make long range elk hunting shots if needed.  The hunting & shooting prepartion paid off as she was unbelievable under pressure.  Jen was also using a prototype hunting bipod by Rok-Stedi Hunting Gear which allowed her to shoot this rutting giant elk from a seated position.

The Biggest Kaibab Mule Deer in 2018

Wade drew a 2018 Late Kaibab Mule Deer tag (12AW) & hired Exclusive Pursuit Outfitters to guide him on this special mule deer hunt.   Jimmy Hoffman (guide) & crew scouted the unit (12AWest) hard in search of a big mule deer.  The Kaibab holds a tremendous amount of mule deer but you have to grind it out to find a really big buck.

He wasn’t quite the big buck they were looking to hunt .

The mule deer was kicking in on the Kaibab, which meant they were checking groups of does daily & you just never knew exactly where a big buck would show.  After several days of hunting hard with their small group of friends, they finally found a big buck that was a giant Kaibab Mule Deer.   

Wade & Jimmy got it done on the Kaibab with the help of their small group of friends.

(Eric) Wade’s typical gross score won the SCI Gold Award for 2018. Non-Typical Gross score was over 210″

The tine length on Wade’s Kaibab Mule Deer was unreal, especially for a drought year like 2018.
