What an Animal

Had a customer bring in his 5x5 Bull Elk that he shot with his bow that grossed 402 5/8 What an amazing animal. The scorer said he never scored a 5 point that scored that high. What a honor to work on an animal of this caliber.

That's a good score for a 7x7, but to think it could come from a 5x5 is a little beyond my grasp. I hope there's some way of seeing a picture of this animal. I'm not from Missouri, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to say, "Show me".

I live here in elk country and a 5x5 that scores 302 would be an awesome elk rack. I do not believe it.


I thought you were quoting my wife about me

possibly a bigger rack that had a few tines broken off early in the season and were rubbed flush with the beams . I have what would have been a nice ten point here that is like that . thought he was nine until I went to clean it this last spring and barley could see where number ten had broken off . If it is real , then all I can say as my jaw hits the floor , is Holly Cow ! Can ya score us some photos ? Would love to see it . Bradlee


Im sure

Im sure because I watched the scorer score it in my shop. The official Pope and Young gross score was 402 5/8. Send me an email and i will send a pic.

Ye people of little faith LOL
Jim, You might live in elk country but so do I and seeing is believing.


Well

This response submitted by cur on 1/7/05 at 9:24 PM. ( ) 4.226.57.14

That is a serious rack....Saw th' picture. I'd still like to tape it. Those are some long tines though. Reckon what one like that with some kickers would score?


Awesome animal, roy

But I guess I have to vote with Cur. It's BIG but it's still FIVE.


To all the non believers

Here is the scores off the Pope and Young score sheet
Inside spread 49 0/8
left antler 181 2/8
right antler 172 3/8
total gross 402 5/8
Even if george and cur still dont believe it neither one of them would have passed him up. The pics dont do the bull justice, and even if he is only a five he beats 90% of the sixes out there.


OH, you got that RIGHT

This is one magnificent animal.
