    Does anyone know how long this has to dry before it gets an official score? We all know this bull is officially the new state record, I wonder if it will officially score over 400"

    Just to provide a little more information to this discussion - the minimum score for American Elk to be included in the Boone & Crockett records is: For typical - 360 gets a bull in the awards book and 375 gets it in the all-time book. For non-typical it is 385 for both awards and all-time record book.

    Kentucky thus far has no elk in the Boone & Crockett all-time records. We have four typical elk in the awards book with scores of 371, 361 5/8, 361 4/8, and 360 7/8. We have no non-typical elk in either B&C category.

    The elk being discussed in this thread will probably score best as a non-typical and would therefore have to net 385 to be a Boone & Crockett bull. Non-typical racks are much more uncommon and, from the elk I am familiar with, this rack will more than likely be the largest non-typical ever taken in the state, so would be considered the new state record by Fish & Wildlife.

    Yeah having seen 4 of the top 5 KY elk in person I knew this elk far surpassed them, and plus him being non-typical he has zero deductions. The length of this Bulls tops are absolutely amazing, no other elk can compare and we all know when it comes to measuring antlered animals tine length is where you gain your ground in total inches. 9x8 bull, after this bull dries he should and will still be KY's first 400" bull as well as KY's first Boone & Crockett bull.
