    I've been waiting to post pictures of my successful 2017 bull hunt in Nevada. The story of my hunt was published in the latest issue of Western Hunter Magazine. Therefore, you can get an extended account of the hunt if you subscribe to that magazine.

    In short, we found the bull the evening of Day 2. Went back to have a second look the following morning. He was within a few yards of where we left him the night before. He made a fatal mistake of moving off the ribbon cliff he was on to the adjacent hillside. Made the move and waited him out for about 4 hours until he started moving back to the ribbon cliff. I stuck two shots in his lungs at 496 yards. He never took another step.
