Tonight’s snapshots are all a bunch of bulls. Kaelynn waited 12 years for her limited entry tag on the Manti. For four days they hunted hard, heard, saw and smelled elk. Kaelynn finally decided to take this heavy five by five just before dark. They were stunned by the size of this bull as they hauled him out by the light of the full moon. Kaelynn says the very best part, is that her bull is bigger than her husbands.

Adam also waited a long time, 13 years to draw his tag. He was hunting with his son Andrew and his father-in-law who had never been so close to bugling bulls. This was also the first time his son Andrew has gone on a hunt with some success and as you see from the smile on his face, the young man was pretty proud of dad.

Kelly waited even longer, 16 years but he finally drew a Johnson’s Ranch CWMU tag and made an amazing 660 yard shot at this huge six by seven. Kelly’s wife Brandy was along on the hunt and had never heard an elk bugle, but she says hearing more than twenty sound off was an experience all in itself. Kelly’s huge CWMU bull scores an impressive 370.

Randy and his buddy were bowhunting elk on a do-it-yourself hunt in Montana when they spotted this bull with about a dozen cows. They split up and after a few soft cow calls, Randy had this bull at 44 yards. After the shot. Randy knew the bull had some mass and was pretty special, but when he laid his hands on him, he discovered the bull was quite the brawler. His face was scared up, his ribs were bruised, but most interesting is this bull had broken his skull years earlier and his pedicle had re-grown right between his eyes.

But our winner tonight found himself right in the middle of the rut.
Jeremiah was hunting with his family up near Strawberry on the general muzzleloader deer hunt when he got right between two fighting bulls.
At one point the bulls came right at him. Jeremiah says he thought he might die, but kept filming anyway.
Jeremiah went back to camp because he was shaking so much from the experience. He says he couldn’t have shot a deer even if he’d seen one. Jeremiah did get his buck this year, but says this hunt will always be remembered as the hunt he got between two fighting bulls. Congrats Jeremiah on the buck, the experience and for holding your ground as it has now landed you our big prize for having our snapshot, slash video of the week.
