The smaller of the two bulls was taken. The fellow had been hunting out west but recently broke his leg. (Bad) Had an air cast and rods. Took the shot at dusk from a wheelchair.

He isn't in this picture because he was laying in the pickup. The guy operating the sawzall is his son, the other two on the left volunteered to help.

Don't have many details, I wasn't there. There is a rail above the critter and they pushed him into the cooler.

The fellow had surgery the next morning. His son is coming out over the weekend to process.

One of the volunteers told me the hunter was one tough bugger. His leg was beat red and looked very painful.

In my very first post on this thread I mentioned have one spike and two 2 year olds around. The spike hung out in a different drainage from the other two. He didn't much care to be around two bigger guys full rut.

Haven't see him for a while but now that the two bigger bulls are gone, there he is.

Just a spike, but his body looks healthy.

14 satellite bulls in the last ten years. Never not once a cow. They don't travel from the herd.

Its weird you say that as I had a rag horn bull show up northwest of Bismarck for most of August and September. Then about 2 weeks after the bull showed up a cow showed up. As of last week she still was coming in randomly. Haven’t seen the bull in 2-3 weeks now but she stayed.

The elk herd must be growing in the State because there are more and more outside of the badlands.

Thank goodness we still have the moose population restricted to the very northeastern corner of North Dakota.
