Re: largest elk's ?

lazylabs,
I know what you mean, you made your point there. I have never hunted in a high fence ranch, there are no high fenced ranches were I live. I have always hunted in open places.
Agree with you that wild game hunting is completely fair chase, but there might be some places with high fences were hunting is almost as wild or as fair chase as in open terrain.

Wow!! that is a huge elk. The head on that thing must be in excess of 2 feet front to rear. Can you imagine the work involved just to get it ready to pack out.

I can't say either way, it does look too fantastic to be a real wild elk but either way, it's in the books.

Re: largest elk's ?

Anyone have a guess on what they think that elk weighed in at?

A Good Honest Hight Fence hunt.

Re: largest elk's ?

I believe they test them, as in take blood samples and what not and can confirm wild vs. pen raised. How they do that is that the pen raised that get so huge have red stag in their bloodlines and that is how they get so big. If I remember correctly the Spider Bull was tested by the Utah F&G and proven to be a wild elk.

Now how he was taken wasn't really great, in that the outfitter prevented other hunters from entering the area they knew the bull to be in, which is of course against the law, but... yeah. That's the way it goes.

Re: largest elk's ?

ya i had my blood taken and tested.
found out that i also was city raised, but it also showed i was on the wild side,
I like to lick minerial licks and such.
so whats the dif. if you go into the mid. of a wilderness area and through down a d couple hundred lbs of salt licks,
cut up the ground and lace in a couple pounds fo forrage grasses.
and walk away from it for 3 months.
its going top put the free roaming elk there.
they are not going to stray far.
you walk in with your client and pow your in the books.
now thats called a fair hunt.
i don't think so.
