    Supposedly taken in the Selway-Bitterroot wilderness and would be the new world record bull. Green score 575" gross and nets 530" with a 79" spread.

    B&C says that it may be from a game farm and is investigating.

    If it's real or not, if you just shot something that HUGE wouldn't you have a grin from ear to ear? :D

    I have heard all kinds of rumors about this one. Everything from photoshop fake, to it really came out of a pen in Canada, to it is real.:sp

    Someone else compared the bull's score to the areas previous biggest animal and it was so far past it that they did not believe the genetics were there to produce a bull like this in the wild.

    Something about the picture just looks weird to me.

    Who knows what the truth is, but that is one fine animal either way.:tu

    Depends on whether I had just dropped about $10-$15k to shoot it in a pen or not. :l

    Im hesistant to believe that....I had a friend tell me a rich guy paid 10g to shoot a "special" raised elk. HE said the thing was massive! The farmer fed it special feed to make it grow so big. And to top it off he brought it out to the black hill to take pics to make it look like he shot it in the wild....Just pathetic:mad: :fp
