Title: WA top ten
Post by: sternwarning on January 28, 2017, 06:47:56 PM
My mom found a pair last year and got them scored at the sportsmen's show today. They scored 191 7/8 and 191. I know not everyone records their monsters, but that puts them #7 and #8 WA state all time.

Who keeps records of sheds and where do you have them scored? Where is the record book kept?

Nice sheds Sern, I saw them Saturday great bull for sure, those genetics are sweet, I get excited just thinking about the possibilities for future bulls, my sheds ranked 7th and 8th in the non-typical category, now that the G-3 bull is dead I can share a few pictures.

Danderson, that bull is out of this world! I'm glad you posted him, and it's funny you did. On the way home from the sportsman show my brother and I talked about Mr G-3 and wondered what his horns scored. We thought he would be neck and neck with my mom's set. The genetics in that whole general area are limitless.

What did G-3's antlers score, if you don't mind sharing?

Thanks for posting the pic. Hope that bull did some serious lovin in his day!

My set scored 433 5/8, with a 40 inch spread credit , when he got hit he scored 424 5/8, its spread was 43 1/8, both were mounted by the Elk Foundation.

Amazing.

Sternwarning- sweet that you got a pic of him on the hoof before finding his sheds.

Danderson- did you have history or know of the g-3 bull before you found his sheds? (Seems like I remember reading something from you about it..?) Great finds!!!!

Amazing sheds!! Took an amazing animal to grow those sets of antlers.

Post by: danderson on January 31, 2017, 07:56:13 AM
I had pretty much found his bedroom, winter and summer range, many great game camera pictures in different velvet and hard horned stages since 2012, yeah we had history, I have some great video of him at 30 yards bugling and tearing it up during the rut also, i'll share at some point.

I got to see the pair of top ten sheds at the Sammamish Valley Chapter RMEF Banquet last night.  Very beautiful antlers.  I am always impressed how some Washington elk can grow antlers that big.  Thanks for displaying them, it made the evening more noteworthy.

It was our pleasure to share them with everyone! Washington state has world class animals. You never know what you will come across when you spend time outdoors. That's why we enjoy it so much!
