    I don't know any details, but this Elk was killed this Oct. It is a pending Boone & Crockett world record.

    How big is this ELK?

    Live weight around 1100 pounds. Dressed about 900. Like I said, I don't know any details. The pic was sent to me by a friend that gave up fishing to hunt and develop wildlife on his ranch. He spends all his spare time on protein feeding, high fences, and watching out for poachers. It's not him in the picture, but I'll ask him if he has any details.

    If anyone is curious about how much your dressed dead animal weighed before you put a bullet in his neck, this site might help you. I always try for a head shot on does and neck on bucks.

    Wow! That's an incredible animal....I count 11 x 12 ...but I know that some of the points could be hiding. A double Royal...I guess. Thanks for the pic.
