With Josh taking a break from college and flying home the day prior to the hunt it did not leave a lot of preparation time for him before his hunt. We began scouting in July and first located this bull on July 6th while camping with the family. We also had a couple of good encounters with him during the archery season with one being under 40 yards but could just not seal the deal. On the second day of the early rifle season with his brother Dane on point and his Brother in-law Colby Hale helping Josh killed this great Az bull.
It was great to get the entire family involved in the hunt and with Granddad's cooking and Mom (Melissa) in camp for both kills made for great memories for our family. Stay tuned to see the hunt in its entirety with multiple encounters with this bull through out the season in the near future on our blog. Good Job Boys!!!
