Record Quest
It’s every hunter’s dream to be the one who gets the next world-record elk. Many of our readers have tried, but not since Denny Austad has anyone come close. In 2008, Denny shot what may be the current record bull elk, also known as “The Spider Bull.”

So what does it take to get a record-class elk? And where are the best places to look for one? Outdoor Life Hunting Editor Andrew McKean, along with a team of OL editors, propose to answer these questions as they set out to hunt some trophy elk—and maybe even a record-class bull.

Through print features, a blog and a webisode series, Outdoor Life magazine and OutdoorLife.com will chronicle Year 2 of Andrew McKean’s Record Quest. Andrew, along with other OL editors, will take us on a journey across the U.S. and Canada in search of trophy elk.
