handford bull elk

Submitted by ono on 6/26/01. ( )

My neighbor shot a very large bull last year that was one of the Handford elk herd here in eastern washington. he asked me today if i knew anyone that was interested in it to buy, he then said that he heard that it may be worth around 2 thousand dollars . I told him that i had no idea but offered to mount it so that it might sell a little better as a complete mount .Does anyone have an opinion on this thinking. thanks tyler. oh the elk was a 380 class bull but with about 100 deductions its a 280 but this is a very wild looking animal , one of the antlers is offset forward almost over its right eye and has a circumference of about 16" . just seeing if it would be worth the time and money?

Hard to say

I would try eBay and offer the antlers only. You never know what some people will be looking for. The only reason I say just the antlers is that unless you find someone nearby the shipping for the mounted bull could be quite expensive.

I would like to see it. We are in Warden, not far from you. Maybe I could get down your way.

Good Luck,

I forgot to mention that we recieved a spike bull in last fall for tanning. It was from the Hanford Herd. It also had a deformed left side antler pedistal. The deformity caused the antler to grow down in front of the eye. We kept the skull and cleaned it. Strange beast.
