I was fortunate to draw an elk permit for southern Nevada for the late season rifle hunt so the hubby and I headed south just after Thanksgiving for a DIY hunt on public lands. The weather was very mild, warm and dry but we managed to see decent bulls every day - 42 different ones in all. My husband took a real good bull in the area two years ago so at least we knew what we were up against. We had 8 days to hunt until the end of the season and I stretched it to the last morning when the weather finally turned cold - must have been about zero with the wind chill before sunrise. In the drainage we were in that last morning we saw 16 bulls (10 of which we had looked over before). I took my bull out of a group of 4 bulls that morning that we had not seen until then and the best part was we managed to get our little truck fairly close to load it up after it was quartered.

The area is also known for good Mule Deer so it was nice to see them around. We also enjoyed some amazing sunrises and sunsets. I thought Montana had some spectacular ones but I was impressed with Nevada!

Congrats Lori! What a great bull! (y) Those late season bulls can be a really tough hunt. It sounds like you guys found plenty of them though.
That’s a really cool muley buck with some mass. Love the extra in-line on the right side :)
Thanks for sharing.

Great job Lori! Beautiful bull! You are right, I always thought that Montana was the only place that had C.M. Russell sunsets, Nevada is right up there though.
Cheers,
Cody

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
