"Encouraging signs on the Book Cliffs!"

Got a nice taste this last weekend of what I can expect come the end of September. It's going to be a brutal wait. 365-70?

It's a huge bull, probably only put on another 5-10 inches. But I would be surprised if he went 370 this year. I would shoot him anywhere any tag though.

Roadless? Do you have an archery or rifle tag?

That is awesome! My dad, my brother and I all have archery tags! My dad has been hunting out there since the 60's. Beautiful area and lots of good bulls, you will love the Muzzy tag! It's by far my favorite time to chase them

That's a great bull, I think he'll score all of that.

Hey PACKER, you forgot to mention the 10" hook cheater that is just off his sword in his right side. You can see it very plainly in the next few pictures in the series that were taken of this bull.

18. "RE: Encouraging signs on the Book Cliffs!"

At the risk of being called ignorant, stupid, or a host of other names - I just have to ask, what is the big deal if someone shares a picture they didn't take?

I mean, the op states "Got a nice taste this last weekend of what I can expect come the end of September. It's going to be a brutal wait. 365-70?" Reading this, one could gather that packerkazoku is implying that he took the picture, but he/she never came out and said that they took the picture, just that he/she got a nice taste of something to look forward to. That completely leaves the door open to how he/she got that picture.

I have no dog in this fight and do not know packerkazoku, shortbus, or deepfork . . . maybe all of us have built up testosterone or rage since it is been awhile since the majority of us had a tag and bow/gun in hand, but it just seems that MM has become this massive compilation of arguments and pissing matches.

In closing, deepfork - I guess if you didn't want those pictures made public in the first place (by the way, thanks for posting more of that bull, he is a stud and good on you for finding such an awesome bull) you should have never shared them with anyone, even close friends. Packerkazoku, many threads on here start out with "Saw this on .... does anyone have more info?" Maybe try stating that next time to avoid the debacle.

Thanks for having my back hammertime08. The whole process is exciting and it is fun to see great pics because a lot of hard work goes into taking them. I have a friend who has 103 cameras posted all over central Utah and it is a blast to see what great pics he downloads. Never ceases to amaze me how people in general are ready to pounce on someone who slips up. I not going to make a big deal of it to my friend because somewhere down the line someone gave him bad info. No harm no foul.

+1 Hammer... Pack and Deepfork thank you to both... Yes there was a mix up but I am glad it didn't turn out how so many others end up on here. A flat out pissing match. And Deepfork keep them coming, I hope you have a tag.. That way we can see what he scores an pics of him on the ground.

No where did I say I took the picture. The picture obviously was taken by DeepFork and I am glad he called it out. The picture was passed onto me by a close friend who was obviously given bad information. Never did I claim that I spent three days climbing canyon after canyon in the hot July sun waiting for a glimpse of this guy. All I said was that here is a pic of a nice pre-season that was claimed to be on the unit I have a tag for and that it's an encouraging and exciting sign. I guess it goes to prove you never know what's truth or fiction on these blogs.

Deep Fork thanks for straightening that out and I hope you have a tag and a good pattern on that big fella and can't wait to see a kill shot. I hope I have two pics of bulls down by the end of September.

Deepfork I do have a question. Was this picture taken through an adapter on your scope? I have a Vortex Razor and haven't picked up the phone adapter yet. Is it worth it?

Great bull, I have the muzzy tag as well and am looking forward to being out there chasing the bulls. Hopefully the rut is going when the muzzy hunt starts.
