    I got this bull after 6 days of hunting. The first 4 days I didnt see any reindeers at all. On this day I spotted a herd early in the morning, about 6km north of my camp.
    After sneaking up on the herd, which was about 600 animals, I was lying down and waiting for about two hours. The reindeer was bedding and a clear shot was impossible. I then retreated and tryed to waiting them out. After a while, they started to move uphill. After a short stalk, I was able to get a shot at this bull. Here are some more pics from the hunt.

    Was this a guided hunt or were you on your own? How does he compare to others you've taken?

    Hunting on my own, no guide. This bull are about the same size as my earlier bulls has been. Not the biggest, but nice enough.
