That is a very nice bull. I'm wondering if it was a free rangeing bull too. One would think if there was a potential new world record we would have seen a press release or something like that. Usually if you see a bull like that it was a high fenced bull but who knows, I will hold judgement other than it's a heck of a bull untill I can read some more details on this monster. I hope it's legit, The spider bull and how it was taken leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Congrats to the hunter.
Wow! That elk is a pig!!!! I wonder where it was shot, and like everyone else, if it is free ranging. I would laugh if it is true, and this guys that paid over $100,000 for the spyder bull was knocked out of the record books after just a couple of years.
Does not look photoshopped, but it could be one of those illusions. However, it's probably real, just gott find out where it was actually shot. There is another photo and reference on B&C trophy watch page. All it says is that they have received the photo, and were told it was shot in New Mexico. However, they say they have received no paperwork on this bull at all. 4th photo down.
Jim Zumbo, Craig Boddington, Ron Spomer and Wayne Van Zwoll are all solid contributers to the modern hunting literature. Through their gifts (both hunting and writing) they make us better hunters. Whether it is letting us learn from their mistakes or by teaching us new techniques,they help us harvest more game. But I suggest looking to the oldies, the fathers of the outdoor writing craft, to learn tricks that you might have not used.
I chose to shoot the 270 winchester because I grew up...
