Ever Wonder How Elk Antlers Break?Contributors to this thread:
When that one guy cheats at golf
I once shot a bull at 6 yards that was fighting with another bull. It was pretty violent and the bull I killed, a 310 class 6x, broke off a G3 and the top half of his whale tail on one side. I eventually found the G3 but never did find the half of the G5 in the tall vegetation. Pretty cool to be so close to that battle.
Have seen some pretty amazing bull elk battles. One where a big 7x7 beat the crap out of a 350 class 6x6. The 7 point bulldozed the 6 point for at least 150 yards down the hill and broke the 6 point’s leg. Was an amazing sight and got to watch it with my son who was about 6 at the time.
Coming to the 2020 Summer Olympics - Elk Judo!
I sure hope they replaced their divots!!
I've got the top 3 points off what should have been a 320 or so elk. You can see where the muzzle loader slug went about half way through.
A friend of mine called in two bulls at once, and he arrowed the first one, then the second one proceeded to gore the dead bull and completely lift it up off the ground. They are extremely strong critters!
