Wow....some of the comments in this thread really make me want to  :bash:

We wonder why folks don't like to share photos on here. This is a perfect example of one of the reasons for that.

An outfitter shares a photo from last year and you are concerned that people question that? I am happy he shared the photo by the way but he should have shared the coordinates also. The outfitter did make it sound like he had exclusive rights to the bull for his clients and maybe one of his clients will take that bull or maybe not. Relax...Kent did.

Share coordinates? Why? I wouldn't and sure wouldn't ask for them. Good for the OP putting in the time, effort,  and hoping a client tags out on him.
Yes, my FJ is pink, I'm all about Team Jacob, beer is not for the horses nor is whiskey for the men, they are both for me.

I think you and I are on different planets. My point was the bull in the pic was not a picture of what most bulls look like right now and the outfitter admitted the pic was from last year. If you keep posting for about three more weeks his bull from last year will look like most bulls this year. Capice?

Its a joke. I know he won't give us the coordinates and so do you.

It's a trend. Folks post a pic, other folks nitpick it apart. Initial folks don't ever post pics again. Folks that nitpick the pics never post pictures of their own. It's a vicious circle.

" 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 have seen many pics posted here and most are thanked for their pics. I have not seen what you see but I am relatively new to the forum. Maybe outfitters that advertise here might enjoy some shilling from time to time? If an outfitter posts a pic of last years elk that he doesn't even know if it still exists then maybe the forum should call him on it which I did. Kent admitted it was last years and posted "LOL". I think most of us get it. My post wasn't to be mean, it was to post the obvious. He posted "LOL" signaling he was not upset. I asked him to post coordinates. Did you guys really think anyone will do that especially an outfitter? Duh.  I appreciate his posting of the pic and have been considering his services. I don't hunt ghost elk or last years elk though so we shall see...

Ok guys everyone just needs to settle down. I have pictures of this bull for the last 3 yrs. I will be posting this years picture of him when I can get up to his home. But with more snow than last year and about 30 downed trees that I will have to cut out even to get up into his area I wont get any pic of him until Aug some time. And with wanting a client to take that bull this year I wont bother him as much as if I new we where going to let him mature for another year. If you bust a mature bull out of his home you might not see him the rest of the season. This is one reason I dont post that many pic on this site and only show clients most of the bulls that we have been watching and will be going after each year. Thanks for all the positive post and good luck to all this year !

just because they have velvet on doesn't mean they are still growing, they spend about a month or more just hardening there antlers, they are about done growing, maybe a inch or 2 at most per tine is all they will grow still.


Agreed.  The bulls in our unit start rubbing the velvet off the second week of August but they are done growing on the cams by third week of July.  This is based off 5 years of game camera data.

I worked for Kent last fall and pulled pack strings into his territory. I can assure you that there are elk back there that haven't seen humans.  He has some of the best elk country I've seen and I've worked as a guide in British Columbia, Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho.  It's deep and steep country and he knows every bit of it.  If you want to backpack in there help yourself but you better be in shape.  And if you want a Goat he's definitely your man.  It's prime country and a really long trip from the trailhead. 
And I think God must be a cowboy at heart
 He made wide open spaces from the start
 He made grass and trees and mountains and a horse to be a friend
 And trails to lead ol' cowboys home again

Thanks for posting, WPO, and good luck getting him!  I promise you for myself at least that you'll have no competition from me.  Try and get a bull within a few miles from the roads though, and no promises  :chuckle:.

Sheesh, I'll be happy to shoot that bull's middle son.

I may have found one of the camps we are discussing after I completely misjudged the distance to a certain place.  I hiked about 5 miles further than I had anticipated and there it was.  I found it right after the realization that I was in so far there was zero chance of getting a bull out of there, so I spent the night and hiked back out the next day.  The spot I was going to glass would have been about 12 miles from a trailhead and it wasn't a pretty 12 miles.

He's a hell of a guy and works very hard to do what he does! Pics like this just motivate me to work harder!

I'd like to see an update too. Either a trail cam pic or a success story. Hopefully the latter.

Yeah can't someone just shoot this thing already! Great looking animal, hope someone gets a chance to bag him before a car or predator does.

I think it works something like this.  Whoever makes the 49th reply on this thread gets to hunt this bull with this outfitter.   :chuckle:
