A New World Record May Be Now Held By Montana Archer
An elk with a Boone and Crockett green score 429-6/8 and 448-4/8 gross was taken in Montana already this archery season. The hunter prefers to remain anonymous, but once he took the bull to a taxidermist they decided it was time to call an experienced official to measure the monster Bull. The Boone and Crocket Club along with Pope and Young confirm that there is a definite possibility this is a new archery World Record for a typical American Elk. Officials say that a 60 day drying period needs to pass before the animal can be officially scored, but it is highly unlikely that the antlers will shrink enough to put it out of record contention. The current Pope and Young Club world record was taken in Arizona in 2005, scoring 412-1/8 points.
“The antlers need to complete a required 60-day drying period before they can be officially scored,” said Boone and Crockett’s Director of Big Game Records, Justin Spring. “But a senior B&C Measurer taped the bull, so we’re confident with the green score.”
