Rumor???2008 Montana World Record Elk

I've heard a few guys talking about a monster elk taken somewhere out of Montana this year. I looked it up on the internet and could not find anything so I was wondering if anyone else has heard the same thing or if its just a rumor.

Rumor???2008 Montana World Record Elk

I actually got the photo e-mailed to me today. It looks the same as one that was going around last year. The story that I remember was that the Bull was shot behind a High Fence in British Columbia and then the guy tried to pass it off as one shot in MT. Either way, it is amazing how big it was, but is not a record in my book!!!

Is this it? Allegedly, "the hunter" paid $127,000 to pop him.

Rumor???2008 Montana World Record Elk

I got this in an email..........said it was killed in Montana this year...here's what was written under it.

This Elk was killed with a bow in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness ( Montana ) . He green scored 575' and should net out at about 530' non typical. He has and unbelievable outside spread of 79'. This is the biggest bull elk ever taken with any weapon.

Hiker is correct. Here's a link to a good article that also has photos of the Bull in Velvet, looking like he's only yards from the camera, and possibly even eating out of a feeding trough or something.....
