Former World Record Antelope
Archie Malm. 88 6/8 antelope
Archie Malm. 88 6/8 antelope
I received these pictures from Archie Malm’s son Alan today. This antelope was shot in September of 1958 south west of my hometown, Flasher, ND. It scores 88 6/8. There’s a lot more history, as the paperwork was lost when Pope and Young moved and it was rescored, of course much less than the original score.
Here is the first mount -with the arrow it was shot with in the neck
Thats cool. I love old hunting pics...
Cool pics! Love the truck.
Through some diligence from some ND pope and young scorers, the original paperwork was located and the score was reinstated.
Here’s the second mount.
Still the state record, what a giant! Very cool photos!
Absolutely Jeff. An archery record that will probably never be broken here.
Love the picture of Mr. Malm
Yup, that record is pretty safe in ND these days.
Very cool Jason. Love the original mount with the arrow in the neck.
Ya x 2 on the original mount.
What an animal. Personally not a fan of the original mount but either way helluva a goat.
Luv to here the hunt story,,, bet that buck drop like a tone of bricks with that shot placement...
Once hit and killed a moving whitetail with about the same shot placement, the buck never kicked and barely quivered... I was dropped jawed...
And of all things to be wearing a red shirt... classic. Thanks for the piece of history.
Here is the mount as it sits in Archie’s son’s Home now. It’s such a cool animal and such a piece of history. I feel honored to have known Archie my entire life. To hear him tell the story, no matter how many times you heard it, was a spectacular event. You could see the passion in his eyes.
Archie passed away in 1996, but his legend lives forever. Rest In Peace Archie.
Nice to see bow hunting history resurface. Paul
Did he have any idea that this buck was a world class animal when he killed it? Did he register it the same year he killed it? Spot and stalk, waterhole? A little history about it would be interesting, No Mercy.
The buck was part of a herd transferred from Wyoming a few years prior. This was the first archery season in this area to my knowledge. Archie ambushed him by shooting him on a trail-sitting and waiting. I’m not sure if he knew how big it actually was. I have copies of the original score sheet coming-I will post
Jason did Archie enjoy bowhunting his entire life? So cool you got to know him, love bowhunting history!
I found a story written by Archie in the 1975 P&Y record book. I can email it to someone to post or copy it over if they PM me their address. Some of the questions being asked are answered in his write up.
Great Stuff Thanks for posting
Thanks for the idea Kurt. I dug out my book and here is the story Archie wrote.
Wow they plant 30 lopes and open a season right away. Cool
APauls, 1953 was the plant, 1958 was the 1st season. The three looks a bit like an eight. Mike
Thanks for posting up Jason!
When bow hunting was still pure not tainted lucky man ! congras
Cool story, pictures, and what an awesome speed goat!
Thanks for sharing!
Here is a copy of the original score sheet showing 88 6/8 as the score.
The photo quality in uploading these is reduced drastically. Here is the correspondence between Glenn St. Charles and Archie about losing the NFAA records and panel scoring the antelope some years later-which had shrunk close to 4”. The original paperwork was located and the score was raised back up to its rightful place
Very interesting piece of history, No Mercy. Thanks for sharing all of this.
Glad to see the latest mount was done so well. That’s a great antelope!
Very cool. Thanks for posting this piece of bowhunting history.
Great post. Very neat indeed.
