Sorry for so many posts this is all new to me.

Take a look at the picture above.
I take it that you want us to look at the picture? :smilelol5:

Your son's bull is an outstanding animal. I don't just say that to be nice, I'm really familiar with the animals near Craig CO, and your son shot a real trophy...........congrats to him! :tiphat:
Thanks for the kudos!! I believe he was the "herd" bull. Take a look at one of the tines on the left side of the picture. It is broken!!
He has been fighting. I asked the taxidermist if he could "fix" it and match it to the other side. He said "Yes, but why do that? It is part of the hunting lore. He broke it fighting."

He was right!!

There was a 16yo with us and he was hunting as well. Within 30 minutes he shot his twin brother. Almost exact!!

I will post another photo or two.

I do not know how to put them in full size so I will do like I did and you need to click on the photo.

Another elk photo at a different angle. I will put together some of my trophys that I have in my "room".

All are Texas whitetails from the Sabinal area.

I hunted on a person's property for 11 years, she had 640 or so acres. She allowed only my son and I and her immediate family to hunt her place.

Most of the time It was either me alone or with my son. It was really a great find but she sold her property in 2008 and that was the end of hunting
on her property. Plenty of really nice whitetails and as many feral hogs you want to shoot. In fact, she demanded that we shoot all the hogs we see.

Click on the photo above for another angle of that elk.

Have you used them before?

Wow, what a small world. My cousin works for them. You didn't happen to go out with Clint, did you?

EDIT: I spoke too soon. He works (or at least used to) for Elk Mountain Outfitters out of Wyoming, though I know he does stuff in Colorado and Utah as well.

Thanks!! My son took that bull down with a 300 Win Mag 180 grain Barnes Tripleshock. That was late Oct. 2009.

That was literally my last hunt.

My rifles are in my cabinet and probably will never use them again.
