My dad has passed up over 50 bulls this year a few of the same caliber earlier on in the season Not as wide as this bull but would have scored in the same range.He had a 375-380 bull he was really wanting but after the storm we couldnt find him and rumor has it he was killed. My fiancÚ shot her buck on Saturday and we had a late night packing him out and didn't get back to town until around midnight So understandably we didnt get up and out of the house tell around 5 and with over an hour drive to the area we just planned on spotting them headed to bed. shortly after daylight I found a couple herds of elk headed out of the low lands headed for tree cover so we made a stalk and dad passed the 2 bulls in the heard they were between 310-330". Around Mid Day I spotted this bull way down low with about 40 cows bedded in a draw we were able to park 2.5 miles from him and move In. Our target ridge I wanted to get to was about 1000 yards from the elk so we could finalize our plan of the stock after getting to it and coming up with a plan we headed for another ridge as we came over the elk were @ 250 yards so dad eased up to the top and waited for the bull to present a good shot when he did he recieved a 180 gr berger to the shoulder! Where we finally killed this bull he was closer to bring him out the bottom so a phone call to my best buddy got us a ride out and a 2.5 mile pack back up cut down to 1.75 miles down and a ride around to our truck that was a 30 min drive..
**dad is above me and closer as you can kind of tell in the video but the way the camera angle looks is not the same view as my dad had, he had a good back drop for the shot and could actually see him before the camera could
