I shot this bull on the evening of Nov 6 at a distance of 138 yards with 2 shots from my 270wsm. From first shot to second he only took four steps and crumpled to the ground. He came out of a bush quarter into my alfalfa field with 12 cows w/calves, a small spike bull and a busted up rag horn bull. I actually almost never pulled the trigger after watching him for the better part of 5 minutes, as his head was down and not once did he pick it up to as where I could see his antlers very well. Upon closer inspection in my binos I could see his ivory tips and said to myself that I would be considered a fool if I didn't let lead fly at this guy. I should note that I've only been hunting elk for 3 seasons which is the same length as what an 3pt or larger elk season has been open in my WMU. Some friends are calling it a bull of a lifetime (especially for the zone in which he came out of) but I will be back out there next year in hopes of finding one bigger although that could be a challenge as I don't think I will find another bull as unique as this one. But then again every animal is unique in their own way. I do not have much experience measuring elk as this was my first time doing so. So i downloaded the b&c score sheet off the internet and proceeded to measure him. I roughed him out at 355-4/8 net. And 362-2/8 gross. That's right he only has 6-6/8 side to side deductions, 22" of Non-Typ growth and all this on 48" & 49" MB's. I couldn't be any happier of a hunter or outdoorsman as I had a stellar year.
