Re: Average bull elk weights.
My cousin killed a 370 bull in southern Co. several years ago and the skinned carcass weighed over 700lbs at the butcher shop. The butcher said it was the largest bodied elk he had ever seen in 40 years of cutting meat.
I need to get a scale and weigh my hind quarters from my elk that I killed last week. My guess is 70 lbs each, much larger than any cow I have ever killed and larger than most of my bulls also. I have only brought one bull to a meat locker whole and it was 320 lbs skinned without head or legs.
