    I am certain that is from a game farm.

    According to the Boone and Crockett web site this bull came from a game farm in Idaho. Amazing what goes around the net!!!

    If it was a public land bull that guy would look like he just left the sack with 3 super models.

    But the look on his face says it all. "damn, I just dumped $40,000."

    Damn! Faked out again. I'll get one my son-in-law about leading me astray.:rolleyes:

    If it came from Idaho, it may well have come from Rulon Jones' operation in Firth.

    If not then then the Weight Watchers people, Ferguson up the road a bit.

    If not them there's a couple more operation further up the road.

    I've been thinkin' to contact Rulon, just to ensue a shot. Squat, the place is over 2000 acres and would be a fun hunt if ya could keep the hazers out of the place.

    I hunt all around it. But too much of the outside property is posted.:rolleyes:

    My neighbor took his son, Cody to Roulons place this fall, for a graduation present.

    He was going the cheap route to shoot a management bull. basically a 320 or smaller of the guides choice to clean up the genetics.

    The story was the whole camp took a shine to the Dave and Cody who couldn't afford a nice bull and were doing this once in a liftime bonding thing, Well about day 3 after no luck on the "little guys" the guide tells him this is a managment bull so go ahead.

    The kid used a 270wsm with factory loads out of an x-bolt and a 2x10 viper by vortex.
    Resting off his pack at 200 yards put 2 bullets in the boiler room about 2" apart. A camera crew at the ranch on a hunt filmed Cody's hunt.

    420" somthing!
