That is a great buck. I would love to get a chance at one if that caliber. Congratulations to the hunter and yes, i wish he wouldnt have taken his pic with his vest on...keep in mind that there are also plenty of master hunter areas open for elk during that time and you are required to wear hunter orange in those areas as well...

...and one more thing...we have to be careful with our pics...there are so many people that only rely on stuff like this to find their new honey holes...

That is an AMAZING buck. I'd like to even see one of that caliber. Congrats to the hunter. I'd like to hear the story of the hunt.

I think Dale and the Mod's have done a good job with their education and reformatting of  HuntWa.  :tup: This thread would have gone so sideways only a month ago it would already have been locked.

That is a world class buck that will rank up there with some of the biggest taken in this country this year.

Very nice buck, and a hearty congratulations to the hunter!

That said, it definitely has great mass but I doubt it's nowhere close to as big as some might otherwise believe.  Please understand I don't want to take anything at all away from this person's archery success, but I would be stunned if this fine specimen went over 200". The tape never fibs, but camera lenses all too often do.  ;)  Hopefully he'll bring it by an SCI measuring booth so it can get full credit for all the cool bone it grew and not suffer from the deduction nonsense that some of the other scoring organizations push.

It taped out at 234 7/8 gross by a certified scorer.....
