AZ Unit 10 rifle Bull Elk, Sept. 30th

You may have heard about a monster typical bull that was just recently taken in Arizona by Shawn Patterson. Shawn's amazing typical archery bull is coming in with a green score of 432 5/8 gross and 415 net and is a new pending world record for P&Y. The bull is a 7X7 typical and carries great backs and beams. Where? Unit 10. Can't wait to see what comes out of the wood work during the late Nov. rifle hunt.

Didnt the record just get set last year? Im not sure if it was B&C or P&Y but I thought I saw in the paper last year that the record was broken..

Not real sure about B&C, but SCI is going accept a high fence bull taken in Idaho. 502"!! Check out this link, and be sure to click on the link of the Shipsey Bull taken in 1997 from the San Carlos Reservation.

These Arizona and Idaho bulls are incedible. I'm not one for high fence hunting, Shame on You! but Idaho hunter Kevin Reid has two great mounts in his den. I have to tip my hat to these awesome animals.

I love the high fence trophys just like the next guy but its a little different if you are going to call it a trophy. I cant stand watching these hunting shows on tv and you can see the fence in the background. Im sure that it makes alot of hunters question their abilities when they see how easy it is on tv. I would much rather kill a small bull the right way than a trophy that is caged in a fence. I love to see the big animals but that is what state parks are for. Go to Custer State Park in South Dakota some time and you will see some amazing bulls. They actually offer a few hunts a year but of course they arent allowed as records. There are some huge bulls in Camp Navajo also from what I hear. I hunted right along that fence their and the bulls knew that all they needed to do was hop that fence and they were safe.

I agree smokey480. Here's a link to the pictures of the Shawn Patterson pending P&Y record bull. Take a gander at this toad. Can you imagine getting within 40 yards of this monster and not blowing the shot?

Did you notice the name on the pics? Those guys are top notch guides in AZ. Expensive but almost guaranteed a monster bull. They are out of Cottonwood AZ.
