    The legendary Wyoming elk known as "The Big Bull" has left the the Nat'l Elk Refuge for the last time. I don't have the skinny on what caused his death yet, I just hope it wasn't by the wolves. After his skull gets cleaned up I'll get a score on him. He was one truly enormous bull which I'm sure at one point grossed 440". I scored his sheds in the 430's but I know I didn't give him the spread credit he deserved.

    I would be curious to find how old he was as well as the score. Truly a magnificent animal!

    just hope he did a good job passing down his genetics.


    only thing better then killing the big one yourself is finding his sheds or him after he expired naturally!


    I actually do hope the wolves got him.much better way to go then a long winter starving.

    One wonders where a bull like this could have survived so many hunting seasons. I?d have to think very likely he spent most his days on public land.
