    Saw a small bull near my house on Christmas eve with just one small paddle. The other one was dropped.

    Are bulls really allowed to trap?

    I saw one last night with both sides still on. Even if he dropped them, I'm not sure I could even come close to finding them in the 18" of fresh powder we got in the last week.

    I've been watching a little 30" bull for the last week, he was in the same place every day and yesterday snow machiners were chasing him around. He still had both antlers on yesterday but I couldn't find him today. I go to the slope tomorrow too so I doubt I'll be able to find them until the snow melts.

    I usually find a couple on my trap line that I hike. in the spring they are easy to find in the "brush rows" in the farms in point mack as they like to hang out in those, always keep my eye out for them, my boss found almost 50 in one spring on his 400 acre farm

    Saw two bulls hanging together with two cows, by black rapids area, bulls still had head gear, they were both mid 30's. They were there when we were heading south and in same spot two days later when heading home. Cool to see!!

    If you have a matched set and they are good sized, you might get more selling them on the taxidermy sight than per pound.
