Steve took a fantastic 6x6 bull in Utah in October and he reflects on that hunt and its challenges. It was a great hunt, but a slow one, he says. In fact, the bull he shot ended up being the only bull he saw. With a very dry year in the west, Steve notes that drought conditions undoubtedly contributed to the difficulty of his Utah hunt. However, he was able to grind it out and see it to the finish line where he finally got a shot opportunity on the last day. The bull he was after secluded himself with some cows in a draw and was unwilling to come out, he says, so when he showed himself Steve took that small window of opportunity to get the job done. In a 500 yard shot, he was able to anchor the bull with ease, a success he attributes to having the right equipment. Using a 300 PRC topped with a Burris Veracity scope and Pendleton Ammunition, Steve says he has nothing but confidence in his personal setup at that range. He also talks about a beautiful 7x7 bull his dad took in Oregon this season after waiting a long time to get the tag. One of two fantastic bulls they named "Legend" and "Son of Legend", Steve says his dad ended up shooting the smaller of the two and now he is out hunting to see if he cant find and tag "Legend" for himself.
Listen in as Steve talks late season elk hunting and outfitting yourself with equipment you have confidence in. He'll also highlight how hunters can increase their accuracy by having Pendleton Ammunition do custom load development on their rifle that will increase accuracy.
