In light of #PublicLandsMonth
I thought I’d provide some context and behind the scenes to my Bull Elk pictures... To start off, I’m not a trophy hunter. I was completely okay with getting a cow as they can also fill your freezer and they typically taste better. As my hunting buddy says, “You can’t eat the horns.” However, this bull walked in and pushed out the cow and I couldn’t be more excited. With that said, Mother Nature must’ve been happy with me digging out watering holes for these animals this past summer as Bulls in this area don’t typically make these mistakes. They are super smart. My buddies have been hunting this area for roughly 10 years and never got anything this big. However, #climatechange
is affecting their habitat and maybe their behavior. Bulls in trophy units have shrunk due to drought and wildfires.
Anyways, as you can see in my truck, I already had on hand coolers large enough for the quarters and then I also had a smaller cooler full of just ice to cool the meat down. The highest quality meat came out first and then the horns.
Thankfully, in Utah, we have so much #publicland
for the “every man/woman” to put in hard work and earn their success.
