Took this bull Sunday 10/17/10, North Fork, Ogden River drainage in Utah.
Hornady Superformance Ammo .338 Win Mag - 185 gr. GMX hit him hard!
Not the biggest we had seen, but had both sides of his head dress. We had been seeing a bunch of broken up bulls we had passed on. 4 days left in the hunt, we spotted this bull and took off straight up the mountain thru a brush jungle. 2 1/2 hours later with my hide peeled off, I asked myself what in the heck was I doing where I sat. 10 minutes later I asked myself why I just shot a Moose in this nasty place. 11 1/2 hours later, and back to the truck thanks two good pack horses I figured that it all worked out okay.
