Abajo Peak

By Forrest Breedlove
 
The Abajo Mountains are a mountain range in Southeastern Utah in Utah’s San Juan elk unit. These mountains consistently hold some of the largest bull elk in the world. Abajo Peak is the story of a two year journey in which the ultimately goal was to find a 400 inch bull and harvesting him. The first half of that goal was accomplished in 2014 when Chad Fraughton found a 407” bull during the summer only to become ill and have to surrender his tag for the following season. On day 6 of the 2015 season, after looking at some incredible bulls Chad decides to take a monster 6×7. This is his story.
