This Elk was killed with a bow in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness. He

green scored 575" and should net out at about 530" non typical. He has

and unbelievable outside spread of 79". This is the biggest bull ever

taken with any weapon. Unfortunately it ain't me in the pix!

Too bad that bull had the record for such a short time. Here is the bull I killed this morning with my RPG.

Yep R.L you posted the link before me. I think it's that game farm elk. It looks to much like the same bull.

Guys,

This was sent to me from a very good friend who has been in the elk business since 1990. He has no clue what is surfacing on the internet. Here is his reponse after I sent him the elk photo:

"By the way, the Big Elk picture you sent has a good friend in it as guide. Tony Barber from New Zealand. I can find out if this Elk was taken up in Quebec. It would have been on Tim Wallis Hunting Lodge. High fence operation."

That info alone was enough to convince me! Still, this is an outstanding trophy for the luck hunter. I do not have a problem with hunting high fence providing the hunt is fair chase and a high degree of dufficulty is added. Congrats to the hunter!

I agree with Huck..


"fair chase" is a must and for any hunting business to be in operation.

Sometimes I wonder if the anti's don't start these BS rumors on the net? I will bet ya $2 it wasn't the hunter of this elk.

*Note: the World Record non-typical is 503 taken on the High Caliber Ranch in Colorado.

This bull will not score over 500, from this photo.

A great trophy for a lucky hunter.

The comments around the pictures aren't mine. I just copied the picture link so everyone could see all the pictures floating around the internet.

Honestly if the guy killed it on a ranch and it still had milk on it's lips from being bottle fed..., if the guy never submitted it as a B&C trophy then WHO CARES! My guess is that "ELK" has some red deer genetics mixed with Wapiti heritage. Game farm animal, likely. I've yet to see a story attached to this animal from the "hunter" himself. Lots of accusations floating around on what is "claimed" but I haven't seen a thing from this guy personally.

Contrary to what the anti-hunting public would lead you to believe (and I believe they are indeed the purportraters of this myth). All wild areas are not going to be bought up, fenced, filled with pen raised trophy elk that no one can afford. Non-resident lisenses are already rocketing out of reach of many hunters. If this trend continues then penned elk will certainly become economically more attractive. That's a really ironic for those who are fighting tooth and nail to tear down high fences just so they can't afford a free range hunt either.

The USO Talman fiasco wasn't good for hunting period. Just look at what resident license fees have done since that ruling. Some states now actually require you to buy a non-refundable non-resident license just to submit an application for a tag drawing. So now you have to buy a license that you may or may not be able to use. That's NUTS!!!

B&C is watching this elk for a record submission. I'd bet, it never happens.

I urge all of you to not let these pictures and "factual emails" push your emotional buttons. That's exactly what is intended.
