Took this Bull last year in Unit 23 NM with Michael DeLao Gila and Apache outfitters, great hunt to say the least. I got the mount back in Feb.but after attempting to put it on the wall and realizing my ceilings just werent high enough we had to bring in this special base from North Carolina and my taxidermist had this custom backing fabricated for it so later on I can take it off and it is a wall mount when I get a house with higher ceilings. So Hes finally on display.

Beautiful bull, congratulations. I really want to hunt the Gila. I assume you had to draw a tag?

Good looking mount. Waiting on mine to get back from Utah, and a new house for it.

Yes my wife did miss a big spot like the whole couch!

I did not draw the tag, the tags in the Gula are really difficult to draw and I was dead set on hunting there so the outfitter got me a landowner voucher.

Thanks everyone who commented, Im addicted now going back to hunt mule deer in NM and Elk and bear in CO so going to be a busy fall!
