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.
Everyone has different ideas about trophy pictures. Looks around and you will see "long armers," "set behinders," "big cheesers," and "blood covered brutes." I have a few tips to keep your trophy pictures from being laughers or worse yet just plain gross.
#1 Clean it up. Try to avoid bullet holes, gut pile, mass amounts of blood, and the tongue sticking out. You don't want your big buck to look like a angry 1st grader with his tongue out or a MMA fighter during the 3 round.
#2 Long arming...
