Idaho Bull
« on: October 30, 2017, 08:18:41 AM »
I drew a good  tag in Idaho and fortunately have a great area for Elk hunting.
We looked at 40 to 50 Bulls and I liked the frame on this guy. Spotted him from about 1100 yards and snuck in and killed him from 200. Me and 2 buddy's boned him out and loaded the entire bull including head and cape on our backs and made it back to camp at midnight.
He ends up green scoring 348" gross and his 3rd is broke off on his left side. 47" wide with 51" mains.

Gotcha, did he bust off part of his G2 on his right too? He must have been a brawler!  :tup:
