Got word of a huge elk killed out of 18A in AZ. Supposed to be pics posted all over the internet. Anyone got any info?

Is that ethical?

Uh oh! I heard about a 400+ that a friend had scouted for his early rifle hunter. I wonder if that might be it.

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.

I'd like to see it.

Is that ethical?

Yikes!!! Thats a big bull, but definitely not from the 18A part of AZ according to the background. But, nice to look at.

Is that ethical?

WOW that is a giant bull, hearing 430??? But is not the 6x6 bull killed in the block unit that may be the new P&Y typical

Great job

I got a pic of similar looking bull on my cell phone saying 415 from 18A. In the video it looks like a 430 type bull! Awesome!!!

Toad Bull is a understatement, The Whaletail is huge on that one side.

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?

Just curious.

Joe E Sikora

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.

Tremendous bull!

Looking at the video, one can see the sunlight diminishing. So I am guessing that the still photos were taken, then the video taken at sunset, then the tag applied and more photos after dark.

You guys are talking about two different bulls. The 430 6x6 has shorter 3rds and HUGE top end

I think the term toad is an understatement! Stroker bull he looks almost as big as my 275 bull! Looks like some eastern az country, not 18a.

Awesome bull congrats to the hunter. #42 elk with a bow! Awesome!

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.

But great looking Bull anyway, Congrats!!

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.

Goodluck!

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..........

Hornhunter247,
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.

Makes you wonder if something shady is going on though.

Why the big humbug with copyrights and stuff. Afraid someone else will make money off your picture?

Is that ethical?

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
