Someone that knows will tell you about the Main beam length. the G# length and the width. or there so Roughly. But what do I know, I shoot spikes :D
I am pretty sure that Spike we glassed would have gone at least 84 5/8". Maybe even 88 6/8. That fugger was a TOAD!. He had good height, good mass, and good length. I'd like to get a crack at him this year, I bet he will be a Trophy Raghorn.

The biggest one I ever saw was with Moosie and he has the video and wont give it up!
I guess thats ok, I do have some photos.
You all have heard the stories of those big non-typicals....plenty of mass & some trash.

I bet Greenhorn is right, that damn measuring tape ruins a lot of monster stories.

I think I have seen a few decent 5x5's out hiking around. Beardown, the Wildturkey 101 must have been kicking in when you saw that bull with me. I only remember a little raghorn and some cows

Beardouche, don't forget about that little velvet bull up in niner.........


I have been very fortunate to see a handfull of real special bull elk.......

The biggest I have ever seen had 7 on one side and 9 on the other. I was friggin deer huntin so I took a pop shot anyway! Dropped him right where he stood. When I went back the next elk season to tag him he was gone. Hell of a way to loose a trophy bull!! That same year I killed my trophy bear camped out right where my trophy bull got stolen.

Kind of funny but.. I did see this bull the year before this guy killed it. It was about a 390-400ish bull that year. I talked with the guy in the picture and swapped stories and he killed it about 1/4 mile from where i stalked it in its bed one afternoon. Things didnt work out and it will haunt me forever.

somewhere other than AZ :(
I saw 2 of them. one in unit 7 when I was hunting deer that had antlers that reached his but when he leaned his head back and he was a 7x7.
The other one was in unit 5b North Diablo canyon hunt b4 they changed the units up there. It was during a cow hunt in early oct with some friends and I saw him from about 200 yards. He was a 8x8 and very thick but short 20-24" points. Had a very large body about 900 lbs I would guess and he blocked any shot I had at the 7 cows that were going behind him into the trees.
Dont know what either of these would have scored!

The biggest bull elk I have ever seen in the wild, my dad and I were deer hunting up in Kapawson/Champion/Rainier Tree Farm about 30 minutes from my house. We first saw a buncha cows then we heard him walking out from behind this burn pile on an old logging road. When he finally showed himself I couldn't believe what I was seeing... he was a huge 6 point bull with the top 12 inches of antler pure white. I took a few pictures but I had a cheap camera and it didn't want to give me the film at all. But I do have the memory of him. He was a monster.

I helped my sister on a hunt 3 years ago. She had gotten one of the coveted once in-a-lifetime elk tags here in ND. In three days we found 4 cows and a spiker that tasted mighty fine!

In the wild, I believe that is the only bull I have seen.
