2018 Guest Mr. Jerrett and his 17yr old son Gavyn were hunting for a specific 440" Rocky Mtn Elk on his gold package for 3 days here on the expansive Silvertine Ranch. On the first day Mr. Jerrett passed up a good shot opportunity on the big Rocky Mtn. the first evening, as his son had just killed his bull, and this decision in most cases can bite you in the butt, but in his situation it proved to be a good one for him. The last evening of the last day things were not looking good for Mr. Jerrett and him going home with that 440 Rocky Mtn. Elk he wanted as they never had another sighting of the bull. But, as things happen here on this ranch, about an hour before dark, at the edge of the lake a 60" wide massive Roosevelt Elk Bull stepped out of the thick spruce forest. A quick discussion with his guide Jason Shaw about upgrading, and the bull was shot at 140 yards and rolled down the hill from one clean killing shot. The bull scored 515" and has an amazing 60" outside spread! Congrats Mr. Jerrett. For more photos of this bull from different angles visit my website and the "500 CLUB" tab.
