Ivories… or lack of!

Ivories… or lack of!
I’m writing this on the road after a 12 mile pack out… brutal! Ventured out of my norm and tried a new area. Classic scenario… located this bull with a locator bugle, got downwind, threw out a couple cow calls and he came on a rope from about 400 yards away, culminating in a 25 yard shot. The Rage Trypan was absolutely devastating. This is possibly the oldest bull I’ve killed. I initially thought his ivories were missing but they were literally worn to the gums! To top it off, we noticed he had a hole in his forehead from fighting. I may never walk normally again but it was the best 18 hour day I’ve ever put in!

Here’s the Rage hole… went through a rib and part of the scapula and imbedded in an offside rib.

12 mile pack out? You gotta read "Beav's" story to see where and how to pack out a bull elk, and he packed it out WHOLE!! Congrats on a great bull Gil, couldn't help but give you a little grief after I just read Beav's posted story.

That is awesome! Congrats on a great bull and on a great effort getting him out! How cool to be able to take an animal that age caliber. The things that bull must’ve seen…

Those who work the hardest, often get the “luckiest”….
