Todd Brooks Archery AZ Bull

Here are the pics of Todd Brook's Arizona archery bull with Colburn and Scott Outfitters.  He unofficially grosses 377 3/8 and nets 366 2/8.  Todd arrowed this bull at 20 yards then the bull stood by and let him get another arrow in him at 42 yards.  He expired very quickly from the time he was first shot.  We had a great fun hunt.  I made a big mistake on the opening evening of the hunt on a 6X6 bull that was really big.  I got impatient and bumped the giant that Brian Marshall with Unlimited Outfitters and his hunter were able to harvest.  Brian tells me the bull grosses 412.  Congrats to those guys!  Todd and I felt priviledge to see the big clean typical 6X6.  Cody Nelson came up to glass for us a and spotted him on opening morning.

We have great video of Todd's bull that I will post soon.  I would like to thank the following for their help on this hunt: Cody Nelson, Josh Flowers, Randy Cherington, Michael Park, Jeanne Scott, Mike Coover, Ryan Eustice.  Special thanks to Todd Brooks for being such a good client.  He rightfully earned the nickname "T-REX" 

I used some great gear on this hunt: KUIU, Alaskan Guide Creations, Hunters Specialties, Wilderness Athlete, Outdoorsmans Pack System, Flatline Maps, Swarovski Optic, and Outdoorsmans Resource Guide.  I will have more to say about all of these after the season.  Now I am off to Unit 9 to scout for the upcoming Muzzleloader hunt.

Bull Down!

Todd arrowed this awesome 7X7 bull yesterday.  More pics and video to follow shortly.  We had a great hunt!

Hunt is on!

The hunt has started and the rut is moving a little slow as expected.  I have been using a awesome bino chest pack from Alaskan Guide Creations that I got from the Outdoorsmans in Phoenix.  I absolutely love it!  I cant believe I have waited so long to get one.    The KUIU gear is working great as well.  The KUIU icon backpack is getting a good workout.  Stay tuned for more elk updates as the hunt progresses.
