My Uncle shot this bull on the Pahvant unit a few weeks back. I though you all would enjoy the pictures and his story. Here is what happened:

September 15th the opening day, spent the morning hiking to the bottom of a canyon trying to get a monster bull who was bugling up a storm. When we got to the bottom he was gone, sure glad he was we would of spent 3 days trying to get him out. Back at camp that afternoon Bryce mentioned he seen a big bull 3 days previous and he might be in the same area. So we started placing people in certain areas to spot for the evening. Didn't get very far when JC spotted this bad boy laying down in the pine trees. After a group discussion, we decided he was big enough and try to get him. He was about 1500 yards working he way down and a little closer. No way for me to get any closer, so I set up waiting for a good shot. Mike was at my side letting me know how far and also making sure it was the same bull. Finally he stopped and I asked Mike how far, he replied 600 yards, I checked the mark on my scope and pulled the trigger and to my surprise he dropped. After he dropped (this is the best part of all) everyone on the cliff behind me started cheering. Shot him @ 6:00 PM and back to camp @ 9:00 PM. Thanks again to all of you who helped pack him out 300 yards to the wheelers.

Enjoy the photo's.

My offer from last year still stands! I can get you into bulls like this, you know what you need to do on your end. With your points, getting the tag(s) is solid. We chased some monsters on the archery hunt, and killed a bull with 21" G2's on the last day.
