Great bulls! The one you got is a very cool bull that should score great. But I wouldn't worry about that to much. You probably won't find one like that again. :tup:

Beautiful animals, both of them! Congrats to you and your hunting partner. Scores don't have to mean a thing - it's what the elk means to you that matters!  :tup:

Sure looks like the genetics of those teannaway bulls.  Looks like the bull hit on the highway a couple years back and it got a chance to spread his genes.  Great bull of a lifetime right there and love the back halves.
Congrats!
