    Joel he was pretty wide. 48" inside:)

    The side walls are 13' the peak of the ceilings inside at 23'

    Yes, but he won't wear it. Guess he is not a Berger fan anymore.:D

    Thank you, I like this form because it includes most of the front shoulders and the start of the legs. That and the attitude of the head looks natural to me.

    He is not that big, but a darn good bull for the area I was hunting. We rough scored him at the Taxidermist in the 340's. He is missing about 6" off his left 4. But his 3's were weak and held him back. I have had him in the scope at 1000 yards and had him pegged using the reticle at 4' wide. That worked out to be correct. He is 48" inside at his widest point. I figured at 54 yrs. old I better mount this one. Not sure I will get a chance at a larger bull. But I will be looking and praying to draw a special unit tag while I can still get to them.

    I did notice that one beam was broke off but still a very nice bull..I also noticed
    he landed in a very easy place to work on him unlike my Wyoming bull this past season..he landed in a shit hole and we had to pull him out with the horse and that
    was also a chore...Broz I,am 62 years old and I have killed many elk ...I find that all the pain I have physically and mentally go away when I,am in the mountains
    chasing elk..Just like you posted on another thread I eat elk every day and that makes up for all the pain that comes with it along with the peace and quiet in the
    Teton mountains or rockies in Colorado or any other mountain range you may pick.

    10-4!! I agree, I got busted up when a horse came unglued on me right before season last year. But the mountain air kept me going. The drags we did do sucked with broken ribs though.:D

    Your right, we walked back to the truck and drove back in. I got with in 100 yards or so from him. That was nice!!. A short pull up the hill with the truck and we loaded him whole. I had him at 1000 yards, but they were moving closer so I waited for a saddle they were going to cross at 825. He crossed it and never stopped. I thought I blew it. Then a cow appeared below us at 636 yards, then a few more. I was all dialed in and ready when he came out of the trees onto that open hill side. I still don't know what turned them, probably another hunter, but it worked out well for me.:)
