True spike!

I voted 6x6 but mature bulls can be perfect in many ways.

In the end Any elk is a trophy

I voted anything that fit on the barbie, but I like my elk like my deer, trashy.🤣

That is awesome bull but what makes a great bull is the bull. It could be a 6 pt or a 7 pt  or even a 5 pt it just depends on the bull that we get so see. Every bull is different in there own way and that is what makes them so great.  :tup:

Need to put a date in there, August 15, after a good forage summer, makes a bull look special.  December 1, after defending cows and losing a few hundred pounds, they can look tough.

That's an awesome bull! I voted BBQ. It kinda depends on whether we are talking dream, or actual elk on ground. The perfect elk on ground can change with a variety of factors. But my dream bull will always be a mature big frame minimum 6 per side with extras, mass, and color is huge for me black with ivory tips.
