Congrats and condolences. Losing my father is one of the tougher things I've lived. It sounds like your father was a good one.

Great bull.

awesome hunt and amazing bull. I've encountered that same feeling in the past with losing a parent, he was with you on that hunt...

Thanks everyone, super glad it all came full circle! I am very intrigued by elk and love taking older animals.. they are super tough. This bull was gored and had a huge puss ball on his lower chest. Did not smell pretty when i caped him out. Ive never aged one before but i know what an old bull looks like. Ive been comparing teeth on them every chance i get. My BIL just killed a great 300” bull and we guessed it to be 4-5 yrs old and it was significantly diff looking. (Sharper teeth/less wear)Any good dentists out there?! I plan on sending his lower jaw in. This is his top set. 4FE06B06-240D-4DAA-90E6-1B5CD956FA74.jpeg
