    It's to bad but I expected it to happen soon... he was looking bad last year. Here's a picture from one of his biggest years. I sure would like to see him once he's cleaned up

    Gawd.... What a bull. How'd he navigate through the timber?!
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    Amazes me how big these creatures can get, and outside of a high fence at that!

    Did you find the lower jaw? It sure would be cool to get his teeth aged. If G&F will not do it for you in Jackson, we can take them to the lab in Laramie for you, where we live.
    I'm betting they would like to know also.
    I think we saw that bull on my bison hunt on the refuge last winter. What a stud.

    What a tremendous animal! Hope it was old age and not predators! Thanks for sharing!

    Good idea. I just called the beetle guy and asked him to save some teeth and we'll get him aged. I'm real curious how old he is as well.

    He was, and the Gros Ventre hides many big animals.

    The legendary Wyoming elk known as "The Big Bull" has left the the Nat'l Elk Refuge for the last time. I don't have the skinny on what caused his death yet, I just hope it wasn't by the wolves. After his skull gets cleaned up I'll get a score on him. He was one truly enormous bull which I'm sure at one point grossed 440". I scored his sheds in the 430's but I know I didn't give him the spread credit he deserved.
    Did you find him?

    No, he died on the refuge. I help the boy scouts every year with the sorting and scoring of antlers. I spoke to a couple of the FWS guys this afternoon and they weren't even aware that the bull had died. I was hoping they could enlighten me as to the cause of his death. Scabies is always a big problem here. The hair on this bulls head looked good but I never saw his neck or body. I just hope the wolves didn't cut his life short as I look forward to maybe seeing some of his offspring in the future.
