... Taped by Safari Club International scorer James Torivio Jr., the 7½-year-old bull weighed an estimated 1,100 pounds and boasts an SCI score of 411 4/8 inches as a typical and 425 2/8 inches as a non-typical. ...

... "I took my binoculars and I looked at him and I could see in just an instant looking at him that it was a monster bull," Harber said. As the quartering giant closed ranks to within 38 yards, Harber drew and held for nearly a minute waiting for a shot opportunity. When that opportunity finally came, Harber was able to thread his arrow through one lung and liver. ...

38 yds is a pretty good bow shot. He had a pretty damn big target though.

He is crouching about 4-6 feet from the elk to make him look smaller.

The I think photography technique is called "forced perspective" in order to make the elk look bigger.

Don't get me wrong, that is a big elk, but a lot of hunters use this technique to make their trophy's look bigger.

To put it in perspective, a long arrow for a tall shooter is about 30-32 inches. That guy doesn't look huge to me and the average arrow length is about 28 inches.

Nice bull.

And I hate it too! Get your ass right up there for a proper persective/scale. That is a very nice sized animal and rack. There is absolutely no need to stand back trying to make it look bigger.

I'd say he's 6' - 8' back from the animal.

I believe a few people have taken the big 7 in Africa with a bow.
