I've been all over the internet and I cant find it. It might just have been a rumor that it was posted somewhere, but some friends that saw it and talked with the hunters were talking up around the 420 range.
LAST EDITED ON Sep-25-09 AT 07:46AM (MST)[p]Question, It looks that the elk was shot in an evening hunt(one photo is night time the others in morning). With the heat in AZ was the elk field dressed,(being that the elk photos are with the elk laying flat on his belly), packed with ice, etc, then draged back out to get the daytime photos?

Also, having looked at photos after posting this. Is it just me are does the elk look to be in the exact same position in the day photo as the night one?
Look at the tag. The only pic with the tag is the night pic. I'd say they shot it late evening took a ton of pics into the night and then probably dresses it out that night after taking the pics. It doesn't look like any of the pics are from the next morning but I don't know for sure just a guess.
I don't know where that bull was shot but not the monster one I've seen. I'll leak pics after the other hunts are over! that one bull takes a lot of pressure off the rest the units, so keep looking guys! the giant triangle bull might still be alive! lmao
I heard in the video that it was number 42 killed with a bow? How old was he he when he started hunting??? you can't get drawn 42 time in AZ for bow, he would have to have been 6 years old when he started. I am confused.

Jay's hunter did not kill that bull in 18A & thats all I will say about the unit. Awesome Bull! Jay always seems to get on some big ol bulls.
The 18A Bull RUMORS are just that...Rumors. I heard two guys from Flagstaff killed good bulls but who knows... Bottom line is it is all just hear say until the pictures come out & the score is in the books. Not trying to be negative, just being honest.
yeah I've seen that for years now the problem is that you can't get within miles of the ranch those bulls are on! ah wth there are a few monsters from one end to the other. dd has a good deal there but there are great elk else where.

true, and they are not far from 18a. like 18b this was from this year! the last pic was from the last week of june, so he had time to grow quite a bit!! we saw him hard horn later,and he was 390+.if i did'nt have 9 bonus points i put in there!
nmto how big of a bull do you think you'll kill in any other unit? my best friend and his gf have the late hunt there this year if you feel like sharing! but great bulls and pics! I've been trying to keep these units on the down low but, ahh.
All I have is a grainy cell phone pic and it looks every bit of 430 to me. Huge congrats to the hunter that took the bull, don't know how a guy can keep it together with a bull of that caliber in front of him

It didnt say he only hunted AZ there are plenty of states to hunt elk in where you can get drawn or get a tag every year....even hunt every year in AZ if you wanna pay enough money and hunt the res..........
Sorry to let the cat out of the bag! Im waiting for an early rifle/muzzy tag in 9-10. I would like to top 400,because I have a 395 on the wall. Also my wife and son are hunting now so next year i will put them in for units like this so i can at least go out while I wait! Im sending you a pm about your friends late hunt in this unit!
I don't blame you for waiting, those early tags are something else. another good friend of mine is hunting the 9 muzzy tag right now. he has his eye on a 420+ bull, hopefully I'll get some pics from that hunt soon.
why would someone wait? make no sense to me. guess he is trying to trademark them. what could you possibly get from all that trademarking biz? guess im just too old. i don't get all this b.s that goes on these days!! oh well! sorry for asking!!i did'nt know!
Need More Time Off... I would be more than happy to send you the cell phone pic. Post your num or email cause I have no idea how pms work. I have heard the story but by no account am I saying its true. Its from the neighbor of the guy that was with the hunter. Not saying its true but will tell you what I have heard!!!! 99% never any truth behind those storys! Please dont burn me for this post cause its all hear-say and not saying I know or making it public. I just like big bulls and you guys will see it sooner or later. please respect the hunter cause from what I hear he is just a diy hunter not looking for fame. Thanks
LAST EDITED ON Sep-27-09 AT 09:25AM (MST)[p]Maybe I missed something but I didn't see anything said about copyrights or trademarks .... With all the naysayers coming out of the woodwork everytime a big Bull hits the ground, I believe I'd have to think twice about posting pics as well...... Terry
thanks for your help. i dont need the story just the picture, but thanks anyways.i saw the bull it was the one we knew of. too bad. looks like plan b now! congrats to the lucky guy what a monster!! a bull of a lifetime!!!!!!!!!!
