In this photo contest, let's see those Awesome Bull's being Taken this Year! Please, encourage others to share their photos too. We need lots of pics to drool over.
Share a little detail about the pics too! I like to add them to the 2020 Contest Gallery.

We'll run the photo contest for a couple months or so and I'll pick some winners around the end of November. Since we're running the contest twice as long, we'll double up the prizes and have 4 winners.

The contest prizes will be a Phone Skope Kits for 1st and 2nd place and Pyro Putty and an Arch Lighter for 3rd and 4th place. Thanks to the folks at Phone Skope for the gear! If you don't already own the a Phone Skope, then get over to their site and get one......that is if you don't win one here! It's a valuable piece of gear to have with you for helping to preserve your hunting and scouting adventures.

When I was 17 my dad drew a limited entry archery bull tag and he mentored me. I was able to take the bull in the first pic. My little brother turned 17 this year, and I drew the same archery tag and mentored him. He was able to get the nice bull in the second pic. Great memories.

No shoulder mount on this one?
I had 3 things going against Me. First, he slid down a bunch of rocks and tore a ton of hair out. So it wasn’t a pretty cape on the underside. Second I couldn’t move him with him rolling 100 yards into a ravine. I didn’t want to be looking for broken tines. Finally, I don’t know where I would put him in the house! I have a 330” bull in the closet. When I upgrade the dwelling someday finding a cape will be top priority!

First time hunting 1st season since my first year out west in 1999. Burned 4 points on a 1 point unit because the hunt fit and the dates we as early as they're gonna be for a while. This guy came in bugling and pushing about half a dozen cows around before I let the .338 RUM eat. 20 minutes before this my brother shot a mature cow on the same side of the drainage we were on, it was a good night and tiring next day but oh so worth it!!!

Winners are picked! Congratulations to you all!

Like other photo contests, it's tough picking winners because so many photos are so good. But, here are the winners I picked.
Thanks to all of you who shared your photos. They're fun to see for sure.

Thank you Phone Skope for the prizes!

I thought you did too elkboy :LOL:
these contests are really fun and I hope they keep on coming, so this comment isn't at all griping but it blows my mind that your bull didn't even make the list! Have you taped him yet?

I haven't had him officially scored but I rough scored him right about 360". I tend to be a bit conservative, so I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up in the 370's. Big bull for Idaho!
