    wow, I musta been in the hot spot... I do see some elk like hilltop's first pic but in general the elk ive seen in 40 and 41 are bigger than that. Maybe its just because im usually a good distance off the road or I am from this area and spend a lot more time there. but take what you will from it. I ment around 300" for shooter bulls but of course there are always satellites around too.

    Like I said, there are big bulls in every areas of the state. If you spend years learning areas and elk habits, you can key in on them. That's not realistic for most out of state hunters coming on their first hunt. I'm not telling anyone what they can or can't harvest, just trying to give a realistic picture to someone coming on a hunt. If everyone could find your bulls, they wouldn't still be alive.

    I think what you posted is very accurate then. the more you go the better elk you find. Also, just because I see these bulls doesn't mean you can get to them. I saw many bulls in these areas that there was no way to get too, wind, wide open country, no way to sneak up on them. Also, I should mention that a majority of these elk ive seen just before archery season or during archery season. the numbers and quality go way down once the snow comes and the guns start shooting. Musket Man, I ment wy elk areas 500 and 600 not 40 and 41

I'll be hunting in Wyoming elk hunt area 40 or 41 during the rifle seaosn in 2015.

    Thanks in advance
    The answer to your question can be summed up in one word "BIG". If you haven't hunted elk, then you will be amazed at their size if you are lucky enough to get one down. Don't underestimate how hard it will be to get one out if you're off the beaten track. Depending how far you are in, it could take 2-3 days to get a bull out...especially if it's a BIG mature bull. Make sure you know how to at minimum quarter them...better yet de-bone them. Did I say that elk are BIG? Yes, I think I did. Good luck on your hunts!

    This is another example of a Wyoming bull. I saw bigger during the archery season, but never got a shot. Still happy with this one, he's almost 340
