Looks like some folks below have been blessed with bull elk of a lifetime.

A bit surprising these big bulls were not taken further West in states more known for record elk.

As tough as it is to draw a tag in those states, they should have plenty of time to mature to be book elk.
You said it.......all the states east of the big muddy have limited tag system....age and plenty to eat plus fairly good genetics = big horns...
