Sorry on the details, here we go:
It was my buddy's tag. He is into the LRH scene too. But this bull was soooo old we probably could have jumped on his back. My friend shoots a 338 ultramag and I think 225gr accubonds. Spotted him at first light. We then snuck in until we were ~125yds away while he was bedded down. Easy chip shot. Shot placement was just a few vertebrae down the neck from the base of the skull. When we walked up to the bull we noticed both of his ears were infected, loaded with wax. Also this old dude hade some serious cataracts. Almost blind and deaf we figured. We had to collect hair, blood, and tooth samples to give to the WY G&F dept. A month or two ago they sent him the results of his bulls age. 22 1/2 years old. Packing it out was unique... We quartered the animal and packed it down to the river. Then loaded into two rafts we had. Floated him right down to the truck! Worked out well. Green score on him put him in the middle of the top ten B&C but I don't think my buddy gives a *hit and probably won't put him in the book.
