Battle-Tested Rut Warrior

Below is a photo and its story that the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation received from John Wheland.

When I receive my issue of Bugle I always go to the photos section first as I am an avid wildlife photographer as well as a hunter. As I looked through the "Bonus Points" section in the current issue I took particular notice of a shot taken by Dave Irwin. I have an image of the same bull probably taken a year later. This bull had the same point broken off two years in a row. My image is of interest because it was taken moments after the fight and the point is still hanging from the main beam. I doubt I will ever get a shot like this again.
