A Friend and Client Rick N harvested this Bull, he stated this in his email to me.

The... 519” bull taken 25 September 17 near Firth, Idaho. Approx. 12 yrs. old, teeth worn to nubs, injured in a fight with younger bull who took over the harem. Antlers weigh 90 lbs.

Waiting for certification….may be #3 or #4 typical Rocky Mtn. Elk on record.

Next Sunday will be cooking some elk, very excited

WOW! That is a massive rack. I wonder what percentage of elk reach that age.

At this time I would be happy with a 360 and dream of getting a 400 class bull. And when the shoulder season starts than a cow would be just fine.
That is one massive bull and a rarity for sure! Congratulations!

Any chance I get to say "Nice rack!!" in a public forum is always refreshing. :lifter :D

Maybe I just see the glass as "half empty" but as much as an accomplishment of the harvest, as I get older, I gravitated to the quote above.
