Another congrats to everyone. Some awesome animals and awesome memories. All I've got so far are half a dozen grouse, but I'll find that buck!

Nice job on the grouse, Magoonpointboy! That's more than I have gotten with the .22 this year.

Awesome work man! Beautiful bull! I am always amazed at how well those Wasp Jak Hammers work! Always the same result...big holes and wide prolific blood trails!
Thanks for posting the pic!

Absolutely man. Iíve never had one fail or let me down. They fly true and hit hard. Have had many pass throughs with them and like you said.. they downright work.

It started with a mellow cow call. Sitting on the edge of a tree island knowing that this bull had gotten to the tree island upwind of me. It seemed like forever but it wasnít more then 5 minutes and he comes out of the bush on the search. Heading straight for me he gets closer first 100, then 80, and he ends up 20 yards away.
Stopping at 20 just inside the trees I hesitated wanting to wait for the rest of the hunting party and not sure if this was THE bull. He disappeared into the bush.
Wanting a second look I quickly made an effort to cut him off before he got through the island, getting into position a couple low bull grunts and he starts heading toward me thrashing brush and making his presence known. slowly making his way to 10 yards away he stops and turns broadside. A great shot
Trying to capitalize on the opportunity I set the camera down and attempted to draw my bow. No luck. He seen the movement and darted away from me.
It was in this moment I realized what I had just encountered and knew that this was the bull. Forgetting all thoughts on antler size and knowing he was a mature bull I got the edge of the island and waited for him to make his move to get downwind and figure out what I was. He made his way to the edge of the trees stepped out and stood perfectly broadside.
I drew back and settled my 30yrd pin on him, this was it, with the pull of my release the arrow flew true and hit its mark. THWACK. A perfect hit, right behind the shoulder a certain double lunger. A quick humane death. He ran away and crashed into the trees. I waited and started to approach him. Getting to 5 yards I realized he was still breathing, laying on his stomach I tried to get an arrow in him but hit shoulder blade. Finally I hit my mark and he drew his last breathe.
A breathe that I am very grateful for, a breathe that meant 340lbs of meat in the freezer for myself, my friends and family. God is good.

Awesome moose, ChefJay!
I have struggled this year, but finally filled a supplemental tag yesterday. At least the freezer won't be empty!

Well done,I have seen several Elk like your 5 point in 6 point zones. I don't think they will ever be 6 pointers.
