There has been some talk of a huge bull recently taken in the northwest. Some confusion is did it come from Oregon or Washington? This is not a 466 bull from Oregon. This huge bull elk was shot with a rifle in Washington and green scores 449 gross and 436 net non-typical. This elk was taken by Dan Agnew. I emailed Dan to confirm as it seems rumors are already abound about this new potential state record Washington non-typical elk.
The elk was taken on September 3, 2008 in eastern Washington and is a 9 x 10 that green scores 449 gross and 436 net non-typical.
How does this rank in the books?
The current state record is the Jeff Thorpe bull from 2003. Jeff took this elk with his bow and so is the overall state record in addition to archery state record. Jeff’s bull scores 421 7/8 B&C.
The Dan Agnew bull with a green score (if this holds up) of 436 net B&C will not only shatter the state record but be the biggest bull elk from the northwest and also a potential top ten non-typical bull in the world.
I will post some more as I get more information about this awesome elk.
Man, the dark-horse bull elk from 2008 just might be from Washington. Who would have thought!
UPDATE: This bull has officially been scored and recognized by Boone & Crockett with a score of 436 4/8. This 9×10 point giant is the biggest bull in the state of Washington as a non-typical and ranks #13 in the world.
