Good eye BigDog.  Yep, I had this old boy show up on an Idaho cam a few times and kind of looks like he's done battle and survived some sort of predator attack (there are wolves, grizz, and a lot of big cats in this area).  But, it could just be the camera angle and its just the way the ear looks from that angle... not sure as this is the best pic I had of that bull.

I sat in a stand off and on for a week trying to find him. Once the season and the rut kicked in he disappeared.

What, a camera?  OK, wait, give me a second..... almost ready all right, NOW I'm ready!  I'm so pretty, I'm so pretty, I'm so pretty... really, like an elk god; cows desire me, bulls tremble in my shadow, and hunters adore me... :rolleyes:
