He is Great bull for sure. Pretty impressive to see and hear him bugle in person  :tup:
Not sure of his exact age but I would guess at least 9 or 10.
He is not a Washington bull or a hunt able bull.

It appears to be some sort of aquatic grass.  Its really common to see both deer and elk feeding underwater like this in that area.

Thanks.  He didn't get involved in rutting activity until later than normal and then acquired and lost the herd a couple times before being broken.  Sucks to get old.   :chuckle:

Friends did watch the battle at long distance, too far for good photos.  Although he lost a bunch of antler, Harold won possession of the cows.  I believe this is the bull who broke him.
