Montana Elk Hunt - Opening Week Trophy Bull
Brian Secrest took his first bull with guide Darren Steel while hunting a herd of elk the Montana OutWest Crew had been watching before the season. A few days prior Mike Marchese and Brian had got into a big herd of elk and had some fleeting shots as the elk moved through the trees at close range. Not connecting, the group kept after it and got back into a big herd of over 100 animals a few days later. Brian was able to anchor the largest bull in the herd.
"After the bull went down we were all jumping up and down!" Brian said, "It was one of the most exciting moments I have experienced, my legs were tired but I sprinted up to the bull after I shot him. I could not believe it I finally got my first bull!"
After taking pictures, the crew made quick work of packing the bull back to the truck.
