Thanks I hope you like the pictures. I always have liked posts that have pictures. Now that I can actually post them I will keep them coming.
The spike is starting to fork but you can only feel it if you touch. The reason for the angle of the picture was to get the postion of the way I found him. And the slope of the hill that he rolled down. I have always taken a photo with my weapon and the way that the animal was lieing when it died.
North slope you hit it right on when you said any elk with a bow is a trophy. Most people go there whole lives and never even get a shot at an elk.
This morning I was hunting with my nephews. As I was breaking my camp that I have had set up all summer and trying to beat any storm that might hold snow, my nephew had his ear piece in and said to me, "Someone keeps saying 22 22 are you there?". I laughed and said answer him, that's Epek. (I really didn't say Epek cause I actually know his real name. ) Any way he said that he had just killed a buckie and needed some help. We were not hunting together but he thought that I might be in a near proximity to him. I went to his aid and this is what I found.
It's all smiles when a plan comes together. We packed him out in different directions and then met up later to put it back together where it belongs. Great day!!
I don't know why the right side of the photo's are cut a bit short but you get the jest.
