The next day we went into a nasty canyon to glass for bulls. We didn't glass any elk so we decided to take a short walk. I wanted to hit a ridge where I found a giant 177 5/8" horn last year in hopes of finding the other side. After about an hour of circling I spotted a tine sticking up in the thick brush.
The other side to my giant horn!
The other side is behind the brush on the right
We circled back toward the truck and added 4 more horns to our tally. But we left 2 ancient chalk horns there. In 2 1/2 hours of hiking we found 7 horns, but no Browns.
Upon further examination, the set that Andrew found was the sheds off a bull that I had found a horn off of the year before. Here are those horns together.
My Big Set! Too bad the mice got to his eyeguard
