    Sorry for the awkward pose, it was hard picking it up with the jaw and holding it all together lol. I had to hunch over it to balance it all. It was the guys first elk and he was pissed because he knows they get bigger. I think he should be happy with this.
     
  2. Nice job looks great. Those seconds' are huge. Hope my first elk is that big!!
     

  3. Nice work.

    The dude should be happy with that elk - my first one was about that size, the last one I shot was on the last day of the hunt - 5x5 about the size of a big mule deer :eek: ;D

    Looks great. I like that the bottom jaw was kept with it. You usually don't see deer, cows, elk ect with the bottom jaw
     
  5. very nice work
     
  6. very nice elk. I'm still determined to go on an elk hunt, my grandfather tried all his life to take an elk, It was his dream, and unfortunatly he ran out of time... but I wish to carry on that dream for him and take that elk he never got too, and present it to my grandmother.

  10. Fine job. And ya he should be tickled. my first elk was a spike about 18 inches tall. The bad part was it was road kill. LOL. Only one I have got.
