Amazing.

Sternwarning- sweet that you got a pic of him on the hoof before finding his sheds.

Danderson- did you have history or know of the g-3 bull before you found his sheds? (Seems like I remember reading something from you about it..?) Great finds!!!!

Amazing sheds!! Took an amazing animal to grow those sets of antlers.
I felt like a one legged cat trying to bury a terd on a frozen pond!

I had pretty much found his bedroom, winter and summer range, many great game camera pictures in different velvet and hard horned stages since 2012, yeah we had history, I have some great video of him at 30 yards bugling and tearing it up during the rut also, i'll share at some point.

Nice sheds Sern, I saw them Saturday great bull for sure, those genetics are sweet, I get excited just thinking about the possibilities for future bulls, my sheds ranked 7th and 8th in the non-typical category, now that the G-3 bull is dead I can share a few pictures.

The sheds photo has been around for a few years now.
:dunno:
Amazing bull that I never get tired of seeing photos of.

" 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

I got to see the pair of top ten sheds at the Sammamish Valley Chapter RMEF Banquet last night.  Very beautiful antlers.  I am always impressed how some Washington elk can grow antlers that big.  Thanks for displaying them, it made the evening more noteworthy.

It was our pleasure to share them with everyone! Washington state has world class animals. You never know what you will come across when you spend time outdoors. That's why we enjoy it so much!
