Rather large elk

My brother is a professor at University of New Mexico.  One of his students shot this with a muzzleloader on the Navajo reservation.  Green score @ 407 1/8.  Might end up as a new state record.

From the looks of your trophy

From the looks of your trophy room, I would say your underestimating your home state.... Wink

Wanted to ask you a question too about 62.  Any bear there?  If I hunt that unit next fall, should I buy a bear tag just in case?

Lots of bears in the unit ! Yes LOTS !!!! As you know my brother took his first bear this year with his bow along with one other guy in his camp (about the same size). Along with many encounters from the rest of the camp.

As for myself I just did not pull the trigger this year as I counld not get one of the bigger bears in my scope Huh? , but thats hunting.

I've seen at least one elk

I've seen at least one elk this size in Colorado -- We  (multiple people) chased him for 4 years with multiple sightings.  I missed out on a shot by about 5 minutes -- right place to intercept him, he just went a different direction.  They exist, but they are ghosts.

Congrats to the hunter on a nice bull.

I didn't know they got that big on the Navajo Reservation.  Looks like Acoma and  Mescalero Apache reservations have competition.
