Helena Hunter Bags Nice Bull Last November
After 7 years of trying, Jim Willard from Helena was lucky enough to draw an either sex tag for the Rocky Mountain Front. He spent every weekend scouting for a bull worthy of this opportunity.
Because this is more conducive to hunting later in the season, and the lack of snow, it was difficult to find an elk at all. Finally, the week before Thanksgiving, the bulls began their migration. Willard and his friend watched the bulls for two days in the rain with wind blowing up to 80 mph. When the weather finally gave them a break, he was lucky enough to score on this beautiful 340 class bull.
Truly a hunt of a lifetime!
