Super sized Colorado elk sheds

My buddies buddy picked up a mega set of elk sheds here on the West Slope of Colorado. Who says Colorado doesn't grow some big bulls..............................

 

And some sheds my buddy picked up the weekend before.

How Big ?

Nick,

This set of sheds will go well over 350". I do not have the scores on them yet, but when or if I get them I will share. By looking at the pics (pics can be deceiving) the forths on this bull are well over 24" long (maybe even 26") and the main beams are at least 56"-60" long. From what I see, even with a small inside spread 31"-35" this bull will go over 400". The other pic with the brown sheds show two 350" bulls, but with them just laying on the ground you can not tell.

These sheds were found in unit 40 and they are a year old. I am guessing the bull might still be alive, but that is just a guess. I would think that a bull that big, even being taken on Mountain Island Ranch, would have been big news and people would know about it.

Bleu,

I also hope he does something special with the sheds and does not get greedy and try to sell them.

As long

as that bull had some width, I would bet he is larger then 350!! Guessing 380! But , he is a magnum no matter what he scores. I am sure I would eject all my shells before I scared him off without a shot!!!! LOL!!! There are 3 width measurements!! This being said, I have seen a bull that scored 401 and did not have what this Bull has!!! That 401 Bull was wide at every measurement, But I would of never guessed him to be a 401 Bull!! Great find and I hope he does something special with them!!!

Those are an amazing set of antlers, either as sheds or on an elk!  I have never gone shed hunting specifically, but seeing a set of sheds like that sure makes me want to start!
