Yep, you will have to go some
Yep, you will have to go some to beat that animal.
My first bull back in the early 70's was in the 360 range, I never did measure it but need to some day.
I also chased elk for another 30 years before I shot my 343pt bull in 2001 and then had to wait another 13 years to get the big bull that I shot last year.
Too far and inbetween.

I had a similar experience,
I had a similar experience, Although it was my second bull (first one being an average 5x5) my first archery animal was a Massively framed 320" 7x7 the following year. I still wish that bull had any sort of tine length to go with his mass and main beam length but it was still an incredible experience. The good news is, you got one good bull in the bag and the next time you are lucky enough to draw a premium tag, you wont feel as much pressure to shoot a "good" bull and will be willing to hold out for a "great" bull.
Congrats on a great bull and an even better story!

Congrats on being published.
Congrats on being published. That's a fine bull.
My story is kind of like Critter's. I shot my best bull in the late 70s in northern Montana. He netted 366. Then a couple of years later I shot another pretty, heavy bull in a wilderness area north of Yellowstone Park that netted 330 something. Those were both solo DIY hunts on public land. I had both of those bulls mounted and I don't have room for another elk mount, so all of my other elk antlers are just gathering dust in the rafters of my garage. I don't have a family to feed now so my elk hunting now just consists of a legal animal every 2 or 3 years to fill my freezer.
