You have reached the top of the mountain with that bull, nothing will pass it up except for a different experience. Congrats on a freak of a bull!  How cool would that be as a full mount!!!!

Thank you for coming on here and sharing.  Would love to hear the whole story from you :)
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

It's been a while since I got wound up in a good FB thread. Wow.
Wondering when the non-believer is going to pay up!!

Someone placed a $500 bet saying that the bull could not possibly have been from Eastern WA bull because of the color of his mane.

True story.
And In case there’s ever any question...

Dude went on and on for a long time about how positive he was that the bull's coloring was indicative of the Margaret/Mt St Helens area based on his 27 years of elk hunting experience.
He was fired up.
And the OP here was posting in the same thread.

Yes I did post on fb for family and friends to update the outcome of the score. There was a few non believers which is expected the bull is unbelievable.! I take the comments as compliments as should washington hunters El Whoppo is proof of great management! I’m going to put this as lightly as possible.. if you guys followed the first thread on this forum there was actually worse slander and assuming till that was edited out. I thank the person who reported them. This forum is awesome and I am so grateful of all of the positive comments you guys are all great!!

Sure looks like the type of foliage you find around St. Helens?  I'm not so sure this isn't a toutle bull!
