Interesting story. 3 bull elk walk the street occasionally on the outskirts of this small community. A 7x7 380 class, a 6x6, and a 5x5 300 class.
My friend saw the elk this morning. The 2 big bulls were bald. He called the local G&F rep(a friend of his) who said that yesterday G&F darted the bulls and cut the racks off, figuring the elk might be poached just for their racks.
I think that was a great pro-active idea by G&F.
The racks will be auctioned off at a future gathering.
