The Final Tale of a Super Bull
The Grand Forks Herald has a story posted about Ryan Muirhead and a massive bull that he and others rescued. Days later the bull succumbed to its injuries and Ryan was allowed to claim the bull. Ryan took the bull to a taxidermist and was green scored at a staggering 456 4/8.
Ryan and a couple of deer hunting buddies were driving the back roads of Kittson County on Dec. 12 — the last morning of Minnesota’s muzzleloader deer season — when they came across a spectacle of nature they’ll never forget. There in the snow, just a few yards off the road, was a bull elk lying on its back, its massive antlers mired 8 to 10 inches into muddy ground that still wasn’t frozen, despite an air temperature of 25 below zero.
