    Putting it in perspective, for me atleast, I find the value of a hunt like Shawn Carlock and his dad did this year to have greater value even though the size of the animal was considerable smaller.
    Big +1, a huge bull no doubt but shot in a high fence hunt it's a novelty at best, I wonder what the guy paid to shoot that beast. Probably more than I make in a year

    Elkaholic, I saw your smile about taking one that big and not wanting the publicity. I know what you mean, we pass up bulls like that on occasion up here in the remote wilderness areas of Wyoming that we hunt in. We just like the huge typical ones and pass on all the trashy bulls with points going everywhere. If you see me in a picture with a bull like that next year you can just assume it was the last day and we wanted the meat.

    Yeah no sport for those guys. Ive explained to non-hunters about the ranch and high fence hunts and even they said "where's the sport in that?"

    There is most probably some red deer genes in that big fella.

    I'm guessing $20,000 + for the shot. Plus tip!
