Nice bull. Your right the weather has really gone south. Sun. it was 60 degrees. Our high today was perhaps 6 degrees. Plus the snow and wind. Would be a pain in the mtn sunless you were really prepared for it. Good job on the elk hunt. Nice to read about it. Bruce
Lets just say he didnt even hit 300. I didnt really think he would with those short G5's and just being an overall younger bull. He had the makings of a good bull later in Life I think, beam length was decent at 44" but not enough to make much difference.
We have had back straps twice and he is a tough old bugger unless you beat the meat with a tenderizer. Also he isnt my first bull, nor my best bull.. just the first bull tag since 2007. and in 2007 I didnt even get to go because my C/O thought I would enjoy Al Udeid Qatar instead... I did shoot a rag horn on a general tag in 08 but other than that my last bull kill was probably 12 years ago. Feels nice to start that clock over!
