Thanks to Muley Mike and Tyler for working their butts off for this bull! Hunting conditions were "difficult". We went from 95 degrees and sunny to 65 degrees and rainy, then back to 95 at the end. Needless to say, the elk weren't around much. Looking forward to getting back out there so my wife can get her bull!

As you can see, he had a ton of mass down low with nice fronts, then just plamates out and ends. The palm on the left side was 10.5"

Congrats on the bull. Where you hunting out there? My brothers buddy hunts on a place near the Davis mountains and they've got some big ones.

Randy it was great meeting you and Ruth, thanks for sticking with it through the entire hunt.
Going to spend as much time out there as I can and lock down that 6x6 we saw for the next go around.

Still sore from loading that bull of yours by the way....

I badly need to get out and get an elk. Don't live in Utah anymore so they aren't as near abundant.

Nice. Lot of character in that rack. On my to do list one day.

The firepit picture was the brainchild of one of Mike's guides (Tyler). It's a really cool pic.
