Well, that's Gambles Oak in back of him and Bitterbrush to the right. That could be in Arizona.... but Del may be right.

It isn't an albino, but it is the lightest bull elk I've ever seen. Maybe Greenie has some idea...

:cool:

A true Albino has pink eyes....that one doesn't. He has a light pigmentation, but he's no albino.........nice bull though.

Dont have any idea where this one is at or came from, but I have seen a lot of white elk on a couple different game farms. There are a few Piebald elk around Gunnison Colo. And used to be a white bull around there ,I think they called it the Stuben Bull.Been a few years. KW

I'm pretty sure that one was from a ranch here in Colorado.. I saw him a few years ago in denver at a sportsmans show. I could be wrong so if I am. I am sorry and I don't mean to accuse. I just think it is from that ranch. Can't remember the name though..Anyone else?

I took pics of a pie-bald cow elk in OR when I was bear hunting one yr, there pretty cool looking. Looked like a paint horse almost, actually thats what I thought it was when I first seen it. I thought I had seen something truely rare and might be the only one....bow season was going on and I had just drove past a camp a couple miles down the rd, I went back to tell them of what I had seen and they was like.....yeah yeah we have seen her too....kinda ruined my moment, but ohh well...lol

Wow, that's a nice bull! But, does that thing look really skinny to anybody else?

That is not an albino elk. There is a strain of white elk and there are LOTS of them around the country. They will pass on the genes when bred. Their antlers are sometimes kinda "funky" looking sometimes looking more like muledeer. This one is a real exceptional one. Often they are somewhat smaller bodied. Ol Bob

you say it has blue eyes, if so blue eyes is a sign of an albino and the brush looks like arizonia or texas
