Record Elk Season
elk season of 1999 will go down in the books as one of the most
successful seasons ever.
Considering that Nevada only has about 6,000 elk, and harvests
less than 200 bull elk annually, it is unheard of to have two
typical and one non-typical bull score over 400 points in one
year. Also there were four other
bulls scored in Nevada that went between 376 and 384 points.
An Oregon hunter harvested a 6x6 that scored 425 3/8. It's on
the way to being the second largest bull elk taken in North America.
A second typical bull scored 400 4/8, and a non-typical scored
406 4/8 was taken in Elko Co. A Nevada muzzleloader hunter took
a typical bull in Lincoln co. that scored 384 3/8.
If you stop to think about it, there are only about 30 typical
elk ever taken that scored 400 points or more during the twentieth
century. To have two taken in the same year and in the same state
says something about the quality of hunting Nevada has to offer.
