Well.. Not just ANY spike is a trophy spike. It takes quite a spike to be one.... We sat and Debated long and hard whether we should shoot it. ElkGunner kept nudging me saying "It is a big one." but his Signature hear reads "Friends don't let friends shoot spikes" So I didn't know what to do ?!?!

But I ended up not shooting it. It was at least 12" on one side and around 11 5/8 on the other. The spread was close to 13, I'm estimating around 12 6/8" min.

Anyways, we were only 3 hours in on foot from the truck up about 1,800 ft rise rith a 2,700 drop after that and with a Elk might have pushed the 6-7 hour mark, So it would have been an Easy hike for sure. At any rate, we talked and discussed it "LONG & HARD" but by the time we decided to shoot it the Elusive critter gave us the Slip...

Hopefully this weekend I'll be able to find it again

Well... Another Idaho Elk Dies... I jsut got a Phone call from a buddy and Grabbed the Tape to score a NICE NICE 6x7. It had Everything but length and Width
Seriously though it came in at 326 0/8 with a net of 309 4/8. Of course I used a Cloth tape and it was +- a few Inches probably.

Was a dandy one for a First elk at 21 !!!
