I think its most likely a freak deer shed too. It would be a weird looking elk spike shed. around where I live the spikes would be a lot thicker all the way up and the big base is strange also.  Thanks for posting it cool find regardless!

It is an elk shed.....the chances of a spike wandering into an area in Pierce County not known for elk is fairly high.............the chances of a blacktail buck regressing and then putting all the energy into a long spike is extremely low.....when they regress they may go from a 3 or 4 pt to a 2 pt but the antler shape stays mostly the same...

Good find....

This is better than the Jerry Springer Show when they announced who the father was.  My first thought it is a benchleg unicorn

Exactly. I think Occam's Razor applies in this instance.

It's appears to be from from a branched antler bull elk that wandered up and over Snoqualmie Pass from GMU 334.

For comparative analysis, here are some pierce county green belt sheds as well. Found on private property that holds elk most of the year.

Nope, they're in velvet. Had milk on his lips too.

I don't know if your shed is an elk or a deer, but it's a cool find though.
