That's a magnificent bull and the end to a great hunt I'm sure. I bet I'd get scared if I knew how much he had to pay for that tag and group of guides though. Even though he was able to take a shortcut It just goes to show again though that if we are ever lucky enough to draw the right tag that there are always great bulls out there for us to chase.
Congratulations to the hunter, It's the bull of more than one lifetime.
Holy Moly, that's a big bull elk! Funny thing is, he even looks bigger in that 2010 photo, if that's possible!
Very cool for the hunter. I like the idea of that 365 day tag. It can bring alot of interesting variables intot he hunt. Of course, if you pay that much for that tag, it's not going to be a 365 day tag, cause you won't hunt from the time they drop until about now, when they are getting ready to shed their velvet.
I have a system I use in Whitetail hunting during the rut that seems to work for me. When I make a mock scrape in the area I wish to hunt I will place a couple of 35mm
film canisters (film removed of course) in the scrape after I have cleared out all leaves and other debris. The film canisters are filled with cotton balls and saturated with doe in heat urine. This keeps the urine from soaking in the ground and can be refreshed on each trip if needed. I will also use the tarsal gland of the buck...
