My first Bull

I got my first bull this year in northeastern Oregon on Nov 8th. 658 yards with a 300 grain Sierra out my new 338 Edge. He was bedded uphill away from me and I spined him with one shot (DRT). He's a 7x7 and I think he should score 325 to 330. Definately the bull of a life time for me!

Enjoy,

Doug

    Doug, CONGRATULATIONS! That is a heck of a nice bull. You going to get him mounted? What pose? Take a hard look at Joe Coombs pedestal bull manikin!

    Thanks Derek. I'm definately getting him mounted, but not sure what pose yet. I left lots of extra cape so I've been thinking about a wall pedastal. I'll have to check them out.
