Awesome animal Rad! Love the coloring and the crowns. Good work getting a pre-shot photo, most of us don't have that kind of self control.   :tup:

We don't have that much self control either! :chuckle:  That's a scouting pic.  He is the bull we were after so that was rather cool.
He asked, Do you ever give a short simple answer?  I replied, "Nope."

My 2016 bull. Shot him about ten minutes into the season. 



Here are the first six my group got.



With the warm weather the heads were really starting to stink so we cut the horns off before we were done hunting.

Here are the last two.

No messing around as usual, Grundy. Way to go.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

My 16 year old son got his first bull 3 hours into opening morning(3x5), and my cousin got  a nice 5x5 with some cool kickers on Thursday. 2 out of 3 ain't bad.

Also got a few pics of my son's bull on my game camera back in July. Broke 2 points off his right side between then and now.

All good bulls.
"When my bow falls, so shall the world. When me heart ceases to pump blood to my body, it will all come crashing down. As a hunter, we are bound by duty, nay, bound by our very soul to this world. When a hunter dies we feel it, we sense it, and the world trembles with sorrow. When I die, so shall the world, from the shock of loosing such a great part of ones soul." Ezekiel, Okeanos Hunter

Pretty cool killing the bull you got on your game cam. Nice job scouting and finishing the job. Those eye guards must run in the family.

Nothing to brag on, barely legal but I thought the picture showed his color really well. At least I thought it was a nice picture.

Yeah,  we've seen that funny eye guard on a handful of the Bulls in the area. I figured they were from the same gene pool.  Kinda cool looking. The game cams aren't usually helpful for us rifle elk hunters, just awesome that it worked out that way. My boy is still on cloud nine!

Here are a couple of Idaho bulls my dad and I got this year.  My first bull and his first elk. I shot the 7x7  opening day and we got his tall spike 4 days after.
