Man, I think I said it last year about this time, that place is on my bucket list of places to hunt.  Some beautiful animals and scenery there.

Great bull!

It holds a special place in

It holds a special place in my heart. This bull was not the biggest shot last year. There was a 380" plus bull shot in the same area i got mine the same hunt. I shot my bull in a burned area that had burned the year before. this summer the Caldera was on fire again. so in the last 3 years 2/3's of the Valles Caldera has burned.
