My 2011 bull ended up at 331 3/8 with deductions for broken eye guard. Would have been in 377 range. My buddy and
Dad shot theirs in 2007 and 2000 all within 2 miles of each other.

Nice bulls, too bad on the eye guard. Even being a resident and tags are hard I don't know if I would shoot him but he is a great bull!!!!! Congrats!!! Wish I would draw soon.

It was a tough call. Couldn't see the eye guard as he had it in a juniper still thrashing even though it was Nov. scouted for 5 days prior and only saw one other bull better.....just the way it goes sometimes

Nice animals! The broken brow tine shows he wasn't a slump though, Its tough to be king all the time!

Those are some very nice bulls, especially your 2011 bull. I think I may have missed it but what did you say were the GPS coordinates? :p

Ha brings back memories of my 2006 bull. I bugled him in and had a wide open slam dunk shot on his boiler room, but couldn't see his complete rack thru the tree branches. I did see enough to think he'd have a chance to make 350" if nothing was broken off. I tip toed up to him holding my breathe and nothing was busted off. Scored 350 7/8" P&Y. ;)

hey to either of you Umpq or Pack, if you draw area 7/8 send me an email and I'd be glad to head you in the right direction. My good
friend helped re-introduce elk to that area in the 80's and 90's and it can be awesome. there were two others I heard about this year
that topped 390+... hell I might even guide you right in:cool:

Great bulls an photos. Next time one of you has a tag, I think it's safe to say you'll be heading for that 2 mile area!

Great bulls, mfiscus! I would to even shoot *a bull period* - ANY BULL - let alone a bruiser like one of those, if I ever get drawn. Congrats on finding an awesome spot!
