This was a forwarded email, from a forwarded email, from a.....well you get it. Hope the original person, a Conservation Officer, doesn't mind. Here is his story from the email I was sent:
"Guys, Here is how my day started yesterday (11-29-2007)
Got a call that 2 bull elk were locked up and one was dead the other still alive.
The bulls were in a field about 15 miles Northeast of Monticello.
When I got there I actually found 2 bulls locked antlers... I thought this only happened in other areas...
J. and I were going to tranquilize the bull and saw antlers...one problem..we did not have enough of the drugs to do a good job. So we walked out there and sawed the one point off of the dead bulls right antler and then we had to saw the main beam of the left antler to get the other bull free. The whale tail was over the bulls eyes, lodged between the eye guards. When we cut it free the bull stood there for awhile catching its breath with the piece of the antler still in it's antlers. When it took off the piece of antler came out...
WOW! this was for sure one of the most memorable days....
Enjoy the pics. "

I got that same picture and deleted it... figured it was more pics of the bulls up in Nevada or something. Nice pictures.... funny that the bull kinda stood around while all the shots were taken, I bet he was worn the hell out. 8)

I'm pretty sure I wouldn't want to turn my back to that bull, tired or not.

If I was going to saw of an elks antler that's locked with another bull I would shoot a trank in his but first. But that's just me, those things are pointy.
