State and Federal biologists are awaiting the verdict on a Roosevelt bull elk shot on private land recently near the William L. Findley National Wildlife Refuge South of Corvallis. The bull apparently was taken during a legal agricultural damage control hunt and might be one of largest Roosevelt elk ever killed. The bull measured nearly 400 B & C points. If, however, it was measured while still in the velvet, the score will not stand as a record (according to the officials at the Boone & Crockett).
Anybody see a pic or know any more of the story?

"In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a brave and scarce man, hated and scorned. When the cause succeeds, however, the timid join him... for then it costs nothing to be a patriot." -Mark Twain
This bull was shot in a wheat field. It was with a group of 8 bulls and I believe it was still in velvet at the time. I dont know all the details but i wish i did.Any way you look at it its a giant Roosie.
