    Nice job BKC! I'm on the verge of a non-resident tag with 22 points and have been considering burning the points on 61 muzzleloader. I have not heard a lot of great reports on 201 in the last few year so its good to hear you got into some great bulls.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words. UH for what it is worth, I met a guy from Montrose, while I was hunting in 201, who grew up there and has hunted unit 61 alot. He was in 201 helping a freind with a bow tag. He hunted 201 in 2007+/- for elk and killed a good bull. He says 61 is not as good as everyone thinks and if he had the points he would concentrate on the n/w corner units. I know you probably screwed up turning in your tag a few years ago and you might be behind the curve ball but maybe a couple more years before you give up on that corner would be better.

    Met up with an outfitter at the sportsmen show in Denver. We started talking about different bulls we had seen and what days and where they were. As it turns out he got pictures of this bull.Click image for larger version.

    This is the bull with the busted main beam, that my son and I sat 100 yards away from waiting for another bull to get up,that was in the story that I wrote for the contest. I thought this bull was a 380 if he had matching sides. After seeing these pictures, he might be in the high 360's or low 370's. He has smaller fronts, at least compared to his backs. What does everyone think? What I notice about the picture is that he looks like a young bull. Next year he will be an absolute PIG !!!!
