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.
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.
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.
Our good friend Mark B. drew his dream Arizona Mule Deer tag in Unit 13B in 2016. The EPO crew scouted & hunted harder, which turned up several great strip bucks. After 4 days of hunting hard, they looked over this BIG heavy typical & decided it was time to pull the trigger.
