Largest bull elk ever taken!

Have you guys seen the latest on the bull taken in the Selway-Bitterroot? He green scored 575 (net about 530) and was taken with a bow. I killed a bigger one once but didn't want all the publicity. If someone who has the ability to post the picture on the forum will send me their e-mail, I will send it to you. This is the most amazing thing you have ever seen if you are a hunter........Rich

Pretty sure it is a high fenced hunt.

Was it this one?

I would guess it is high fence and lots of steroids.

Re: Largest bull elk ever taken!

Regardless of all the drama surrounding ANY of these ginormous bulls I can't deny their size and based on that alone they have a pretty high cool factor.

BUT, when they are taken under these circumstances, for me, the cool factor doesn't last much longer than it takes to read the article. Again, there is no denying the mammoth size that's for sure but they just don't retain the same value.

Putting it in perspective, for me atleast, I find the value of a hunt like Shawn Carlock and his dad did this year to have greater value even though the size of the animal was considerable smaller.
