Steve Felix’s archery record is now on display at the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation in Missoula, Montana.
It is one thing to kill the record archery elk, but it’s another thing to do it by yourself on public ground. That’s exactly what Steve Felix did, and now his name will be forever etched into elk hunting history. Now anyone can go and see the magnificent bull elk in Missoula, Montana.
The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation now has the elk on display. Harvested in September of 2016, Felix’s elk has a gross score of 447 inches and a net of 430 (Boone & Crockett and Pope & Young).
For those who don’t know what those numbers mean, the public land giant is the largest elk ever taken in Montana. It’s also the largest ever killed with a bow and the largest taken in North America in just less than a half century. So, it’s kind of a big deal, to say the least.
Below are some pictures of the animal in all its glory.
According to an article from KRTV, RMEF’s Elk Country Visitor Center is located at 5705 Grant Creek Road in Missoula, Montana. It’s open 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Friday and 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. So, if you’re ever out that way and you love the outdoors, make sure to swing by and check it out.
It won’t disappoint! Congrats again to Steve on an amazing animal, and kudos to the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation on the exhibit to honor such a legendary bull.
