    This is my cousin and his daughter. They don't hunt for horns, they hunt to fill the freezer and if something big comes along, they take it. This is the bull he got about a week ago. A 350 class bull. Last year (or perhaps the year before) his daughter shot a 372" bull with a rifle. This bull was taken with a bow.

    Really nice bull. Impressive antlers. Looks to be nearly perfect symmetry.

    No, spot and stalk, call them in.

    This year has been pretty lean as far as number of elk. They had seen 3 total and killed 2 of them. They were out walking one afternoon, did a little calling and this bull came in on a string, ticked off and ready to fight.
