Haven't heard a word

Pretty nice bull, eh.  I haven't heard a thing about a new world record bull.  Where was is shot and by who?  I'm with Still Hunter, is this free roaming or was it shot on a high fence ranch?

Post some more info if you have it.  Thanks!

Dont know for a fact but I

Dont know for a fact but I was sent this in an email that was said that it was killed in unit 36 in NM. If it is true that would be great. All of NM is free range so it would be a true World Record. 

That is the same unit we hunted in, we saw nothing like that. Did get one but there is more bone on one point than our whole elk!!!

Look like the bullet didn't

Look like the bullet didn't pass through. I see nothing on the side showing. I'm counting 11 points on one side. Did I miss any?

That is a very nice bull. I'm

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!!!! 

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.
