    That first picture is one of the finest success shots I've ever seen. Not only is it a beautiful caribou with gorgeous long tines, but the way you framed it with no tines being obscured and with a beautiful background is perfect. That, sir, is good stuff. I'm sure I speak for others when I say that we'd love to hear the story.

    Wowzaa! That there is a dang fine trophy. Would love to hear the story on it. I bet you are glad you didn't have to saw that rack in half!

    Congrats!!!

    Ditto that. If he'd have had to saw it in half, that would have been only part of the damage done to the rack; the other part of the damage would been caused by the torrent of tears shed upon those antlers.

    Great bull, great photography. Now lets have "the rest of the story". Please?

    Thank you everybody for the kind words, I am humbled to have been a part in the taking of this caliber caribou. I'll try to get to a story, sooner or later, when I find the words. I am still pretty speechless.

    That may very well be a Booner! Compared to a 390" caribou I killed, that looks to have more to measure.The difference will come out after deductions, and the mainbeams may be a bit "short" (though pics can be decieving), but with those long top points...

    Whatever the result, that is a very fine set of headgear ! Beautiful ! Congratulations on an exceptional bull caribou !

    Ok, I still can't sleep. Here's a few more pictures. My pardner and his bull of another brand that we killed two days before the caribou, and a few more gratuitous caribou shots...I'll work on a story tomorrow, gotta try and sleep.
