Nice bull. Great memories, i'm sure.
Welcome to world of elk hunting. Hope you can enjoy hunting big bulls and harvesting smaller bulls in the future, unless you can keep getting 'hooked up' with special tags. I love hunting elk, even if not "trophies". Figure out how and where to hunt general unit elk and go have fun, even if the elk are not like Deseret.
Regarding your question...
If i was your brother, I'd gain Utah residency for a year and then have a chance to draw a decent tag. Maybe a premium archery tag in the rut for 17 points (18 by the time he is a resident). Otherwise, it might be a while before he gets a great non-resident rifle tag. Like maybe never. (i am sort of joking about gaining residency, but...)
As for you, keep applying and earning points, but hunt general in the meantime. And look at other states to hunt as a non-resident.
(BTW...you can look up draw odds and get an idea of where/when you might have a chance to draw certain units)
