A self-guided elk hunt on public land can be extremely difficult. However, this hunter managed to bag a beautiful 5×6 bull on his Colorado longbow elk hunt.
Just because a self-guided hunt on public land is really tough doesn’t mean you can’t be successful if you know what you’re doing. As you can see, this guy had a very successful longbow elk hunt while on some public land in Colorado.
Used properly, it’s possible to make an ethical kill on even the largest of animals with a longbow. Is this a nice elk or what?
This hunter clearly knows what he is doing and he managed to take a beautiful bull elk that only ran about 80 yards after the shot.
Nice shooting! That looked like a really exciting hunt.
