Leaving in about an hour for Young starting my 23N bull elk hunt. Trip takes an hour to go the 20 mile. (rough road between the house and Young). Have talked to the outfitter and he has had a guide out there last week and he came up this week to scout. Seeing good bulls, but lots of busted points.
Wish me luck as this will be the last bull elk hunt for me. (72). I still will hunt, easier to get a cow tag, and I can get one of those out by myself.
Best of Luck Terry! Hope you have the elk hunt of your dreams. Hope to hear some updates or better yet see some bloody hands on this thread in the near future. I'm tuned in!
Hope you get the biggest Bull ever!
Well, it is not the biggest bull ever, but is plenty big enough. 265 yd. shot at bedded bull. 30 yd. recovery.
Outstanding! Congrats Terry!
Very nice bull man. Love the extras. Worthy of the tag! Congratulations and thanks for sharing!
Very nice bull. Congrats...
Nice Bull Terry. Congratulation's!
Thanks for all your kind words.
That's getting it done --- kudos to you, Terry!
Nice! This year all I got was a bonus point....
Congratulations Terry, great bull!
Very very nice... Congratulations
Just got an email back from the F&G that the bull was 9 years old. They had me pull the two front bottom teeth and send them in. Sent them the measurements of the antlers and they track how they are doing in the "Trophy" units.
Probably should have waited another year, NOT.
Giant in my books! I’d be tickled to kill a bull that big.. congrats!
That's great, Terry. G&F lost the teeth to my huge mule deer...I was really looking forward to the results.
Good bull, Terry! Probably at his max antler-wise. Rugged old cuss (the elk) ...
Lv2hnt, He was really in poor shape. No fat at all. Really Skinny. Had several holes in his butt where he had been stabbed while fighting. While he had not broken off any major tines, there were several little ones that had been broken off. So he would have been an 8 X 9. Turned him into hamburger.
