Definately NOT a red stag. Red Stag have "crowns" at the top of the antlers. That is just one big ass elk.

Just about every state that has elk will have one that big - the trick is finding him.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

Re: where can I find this kind of elk?

sorry on the misidentification. Look at arizona, new mexico. I saw a big one in unit 11 in Idaho. Would have went 380-400. Never got the shot just the image of him that will last forever in my memories. Maybe next year I'll draw that tag again. Doubt it though.

Re: where can I find this kind of elk?

There are some huge bulls in Arizona and a few giagantic ones. If you want the biggest of the biggest, the San Carlos reservation is the ticket. You will pay 30,000 USD for 1 tag + you must have a guide. The best dont come cheap either. You do get what you pay for. The largest free ranging elk in the world can be found and have been taken there. One scored over 500 inches B&C. 400 inches is concidered the best of the best. Many bulls in the 400-450 inch range have come off the San Carlos. Hunters pass up 350-390 inch class bulls there on a regular basis. No where else in the world do you pass up a 390 bull and very very few places would you pass a 350 class bull.

Re: where can I find this kind of elk?

What magazine did the picture come from? I wonder if it could have come off of a game farm. Big Game Adventures magazine does lots of canned hunts in Saskatchewan where they get elk that size and bigger (Stuff you're not often going to find wild in my province).
