Collins crosses off #16 on bucket list

 

Mark Collins can scratch off #16 off his bucket list after taking down this bull elk with a bow during the rut at Gallatin National Forrest in Montana.
 
Collins bugled the bull elk in from over a mile away to 26 yards. Using a 32 inch long arrow he got a complete pass through when the arrow impacted the bull’s chest cavity. The bull walked nearly a half mile before laying down to rest.
 
Collins said, “Take the worst buck fever you have ever had and multiply it by 10. That will get you close. I have never done anything so exhilarating and exhausting in my life.”
