Weekend Trophy Room

Bull Elk Antlers

Well I took a stab at helping my uncle hang some mounts this past weekend. The house has been in various states of construction over the past year so the mounts have been getting kicked around, but not anymore! Cleared some space in the basement and started hanging what I could.  Too bad we don’t have more wall space.

Mule Deer Whitetail Cross?

Mule Deer Whitetail Cross?

A friend of mine found a really interesting shed horn (antler) on our farm.  Pretty unusual double beam structure, makes me think it could possibly be a mule deer whitetail cross as I have seen similar characteristics on other deer.

Montana 380-20 Elk Hunt 2008

Bull Elk 380-20 Boulder/Elkhorn Montana

I am one of the lucky few to get the chance to hunt a bull elk in the Montana 380-20 hunting district (about a 2% chance of drawing).  My Uncle Bob and I had a successful hunt during an unusually warm hunting season. We spent most of our time hunting the Compton Ranch just east of Boulder. It was late Thanksgiving Day when I got to chance to harvest the first legal elk I had even seen that season. Here are a few pictures from the hunt.
