 :tup: Nice bull and hope this isn't true that it's been confiscated. :sry:
"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

Oh boy. Tag!
:fire.:

" 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

One might thing, but we should all speculate, claim to know someone who was there, claim to know the WDFW officers who served the warrant, maybe even claim to have been there ourselves.  Let's not let anything stop us from speculating and trying the whole lot right here online. 

Please, quit dancing around the story folks, get to the claims, speculation, declarations and entertainment!  The Bullwinkle thread has been quiet for far too long!

Was just curious because the hunter is a friend and my butcher, guess I'll call him tomorrow.

Well seeing as how I have reason to suspect 'Landowner' is some kinda local landowner and dude with sheds is a local landowner's (unrelated) grandson...tag.
100% speculation.
Have you called your district biologist to voice your concerns?
Have you attended a public meeting on season setting?
You are getting exactly what you deserve from WDFW

Better yet. Can we speculate as to who the "buddy" was that called em from notellum ridge to say where the bull was? A local "guide" for hire perhaps?
Seriously though...Probably all on the up and up and it's all a giant hoax.

Hope this all turns out to be legit. At least the unit is open to branch antlered bulls.

Don't know about the cape, but the antlers definitely are.

It will be interesting to see where this particular matter ends up, whatever the facts and issues are.  But set  aside for a minute whatever it involves and consider a more general and non-specific point.       

A general issue that gets discussed on H-W a lot is property rights and rules.  Most are fundamental and common sense principles.  And most hunters are very respectful of those principles.  Before I venture onto my neighbor's property, or your property, I get permission or I won't step onto it.  It's common sense and it's the law.   Because of that,  the so called "local" and other purported "guides" and permit holders who venture into the Blues should not lose their minds in pursuing big game and shed hunting quests.  There are a lot of eyes and ears out there---and of course we now have the live and wireless relay cameras.  And other common photo cameras.   

It's an honor to get drawn for a much sought after permit.   Have a good time, enjoy the hunt, but don't let the pursuit of the animal cloud good judgment.   Certain things are just not going to be tolerated by those who don't play by the rules.

What a bummer.  Hopefully it was a simple mistake of where they were or thought they were.

Why would the WDFW take these antlers but not the Bullwinkle antlers?  :dunno:
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.
