    Didn't someone shoot a bull like that in Nevada last year? I thought I saw it in a hunting mag.

    Not sure. I didn't see it if someone did. I wouldn't doubt it tho. They have been around for years

    As far as I know. We had a transplant from yellow stone or something quite a few years ago and I believe these are native. A friend whacked a pretty white bull this past year:

    This bull was a transplant and was 13 years old.

    Yep, 13 years old. That's a old bull. Imagine his size in his prime?

    Never heard of that. From what I've been told the Indians won't kill the white elk because they are in some way spiritual to them. So I would assume if that is true then they have been around for awhile.
