Apparently, there's still some huge bull elk wandering around on public land in Montana. According to the Missoulian, on September 10th, a resident bowhunter took what will probably be the new archery world record typical bull elk, on public land, in Montana. We won't know the final score until the 60- day drying period is up, but it's not likely the antlers will shrink enough to threaten their record status.

The hunter wants his name to be kept secret and doesn't want the location where he took the elk to be revealed, until his buddy can do some hunting in the same spot and fill HIS tag. Now, THAT'S a good friend.

And while it will probably be the archery record, it looks like it will fall at about #4 elk of all time, when you take into account the gun kills.

Here's the story - with a photo of the elk.
