I was out coyote hunting
with a buddy when I stopped the car to glass a wheat field. I had thought it was a coyote sitting there about 500-600 yards out. Upon closer inspection, I could make out a very large set of horn on the ground. I've never been into collecting dropped sheds, I always just leave them. But I started glassing the perimeter and by golly if I did not see the 2nd dropped horn not 40 yards away. I said what the heck and made the walk. The first horn was a 7 point from an elk. I knew it was pretty big from the looks of it, at least a 300 class bull. I walked to the 2nd horn and it was a 6 point. So I paired them up and it appeared to be a very large 6x7. I am 6'2, the top of the horns come up to my shoulders, I knew it was a nice set of horns. By far the best find I have ever come across. When I took them home, my dad and uncle about crapped themselves. Turns out I found a very nice 6x7. They said it was huge and that I should have it scored. So I called the local taxidermy who was an official scorer and got to work on it. Turns out the bull was an estimated 367 class, considering it was to have a 40" spread. One horn was like 163 and the other was like 165. It is high enough to put it up in the oregon record book as well. Well here they are!
