Well I finally made it happen last night. I sat on my bait about 2 and a half hours and I caught a glimpse of him back in the trees behind my bait then 45 minutes later he showed himself again, So I got behind the 375 Ultra and sent a 270 grain Barnes TSX his way. He hit the ground instantly then got up and ran about 5 yards and piled up again. He was facing me slightly quartering so I stuck it in his shoulder and it came out in front of he opposite hind quarter. He measures 6'7" with the skull still in, I dont know if thats how you measure them or if its done with the skull out, if its done with no skull itll gain a couple inches. Game and Fish Aged him at over 20 years old.
