Bull elk locked up

I got this in an email the other day, cool stuff.
__________________________________________________ ___________
Here is how my day started yesterday (11-29-2007) Got a call that 2 bull elk were locked up and one was dead the other still alive.

The bulls were in a field about 15 miles Northeast of Monticello.

When I got there I actually found 2 bulls locked antlers... I thought
this only happened in other areas...

J. and I were going to tranquilize the bull and saw antlers...one problem ..we did not have enough of the drugs to do a good job. So we walked out there and sawed the one point off of the dead bulls right antler and then we had to saw the main beam of the left antler to get the other bull free. The whale tail was over the bulls eyes, lodged between the eye guards.

When we cut it free the bull stood th ere for awhile catching its breath with the piece of the antler still in it's antlers. When it took off the piece of antler came out...

WOW! this was for sure one of the most memorable days....

Enjoy the pics.

Wow, would have been difficult not toss a loop around his neck, feed him some corn and oats, and have a GREAT steak! Well done! Another beautiful animal saved, to, hopefully, make more beautiful animals!

That's amazing:

It's amazing the elk didn't kill park officer.

It ain't no fun unless you get some of it on you.
