Man Quinton, that is a
Man Quinton, that is a gorgeous bull! A huge congrats to your brother!! And as TBONE says, is that a huge hole in the left side??? Really, really unique. Does not look like it goes all the way through though.
You guys worked really, really hard, and your brother surely deserves a trophy bull like that! I am sure the wait for unit 61 was well worth it for him to take that quality of an animal!
Way to go, awesome job!!!!

THANK YOU !!
Thank you all for the excellent comments !
TBONE and Sean,
That is a big chunk that was probably another point that broke off before he fully hardened. The hole does not go all the way through.
They were still rutting very hard ! Bugling and fighting the whole time we were chasing them. The bull even has a big gouge in his forehead. As far as my tag, I am a lucky holder of a doe tag for November this year, but I have been invited to the Indiam Reservation past Durango for a 2 day mule derr hunt in December.
My brother spent 12 PP's on this tag for 1st season. I think you can draw with 11 resident points. I am the closest with 6 PP's, but am probable going to hunt unit 40 in the next 2 years.
Thanks again to everyone !

Way to go Guys!!
Sounds like it was well worth the wait!! When i dream of the ideal elk hunt its in the middle of a bunch of buglin bulls on a nice sunny morning. Must have been an incredible hunt. Congrats to you & your brother, it was only a matter of when. It sure is nice that there are units out there that give the average guy an opportunity to experience something like this at least once or a couple times in a persons lifetime!!!
