    ND Bull Elk

    My son got his elk back from the taxidermist. He drew his once in a lifetime tag for ND this past fall. Had a blast hunting with him, but those are some big critters.

    Taken in the Turtle Mountains in October. We have both had our elk tags so now to go after the moose tags. Bighorn would be ideal but that is a real long shot?

    I am in shock you have both gotten tags, you should buy more lottery tickets!

    Nice bull for your son I am sure it was a blast!

    I wish they could do something about the population where people have a higher chance to draw. Or at least make it somewhat weighted so people like my dad and gpa have a higher chance of drawing. He's put in for 30+ years while a kid I knew drew his first year of being a ND resident and shot a tanker. I know there isn't an easy solution but man stuff like that stinks to see happen.

    Exceptional trophy and mount. I hope and wish every year for one of the handful of Arkansas bull tags.

    Turned out very well! And it feels like they get bigger when you have to put them inside your house!

    Very pretty bull and an exceptional job by the taxidermist. Memories and a neat way to honor the animal as well.

    I actually got tired of applying for a bull tag and applied for a cow tag and drew it. Most I know that put in for cow tags draw fairly quickly.
