On January 10, the Boone and Crockett Club (B&C) and the Pope and Young Club (P&Y) announced that the bull elk that took the hunting world by storm back in 2016 is a potential new archery World Record typical elk. The bull was taken on a solo public land hunt by Montana resident, Steve Felix. The score was officially confirmed after the mandatory 60-day drying period at 430 0/8″! To put that in perspective, it’s the largest typical bull elk taken in almost 50 years! The bull currently ranks number 4 all-time in B&C’s record book and should be the new P&Y World Record. The current World Record P&Y bull scores 412 1/8″ and was taken in 2005.
Originally the bull had a green score of 448″ 4/8″ gross and 429 6/8″ net. It’s great to see the green score hold up on this phenomenal animal.
