I'd drop 'em like a toilet seat in a house full of women. They'll just die of old age at some point anyway.
I would shoot one. It is a once in a lifetime oppurtunity.
I would have to take one if the oppurtunity arrived.Would make a beautiful mount plus a freezer full of meat thats the best part.
i would be the happiest guy on earth to harvest either bull. but the bull on the left is unbelievable!!!! call the taxidermist,and get some hickory burnin in my smoker!!!!!!!
I say let's eat and have a few beers and talk smack about the stud that got one,cheers.
Yeah, I'd shoot one, but they probably taste like albino chichen.
I'd shoot one
yes i would because it would make a great shoulder mount and some good dinner for a while and ive seen hen turkeys with huge beards!!!
I love white meat. of course I'd take one, unless i was with a friend, then we woud take both if it was in season of course.
the albino on the left would be on the ground before you could say freetriplescore.com, mmmm good eating and what a nice shoulder mount in my den
Would I take one? That depends on the situation...but a "rare elk" steak cooked medium rare sounds delicious! Ha! I'm so punny!
I saw this picture on another site. They are on a game farm in Texas. If I found one like them in the wild, you can bet I'd have a one of a kind shoulder mount. You would really think the outdoor life editors could do a better job of screening these postings, like the recent coyote posting that was recently revealed as a fraud. I mean come on, just a little detective work would really help with your credibility. I know I'm already starting to question every rare thing I see posted on your site. How many 8 year olds with photo shop could pull one over on you guys.
that looks like a once in a life time deal pretty neat.
Looks like it would be kinder to kill the albino bulls then to let them live. They're white and easily seen.
Bang--done--venison.....no debate in the least.
Are these really albino elk or are they Russian White Elk? I couldn't see their eyes clearly enough in the pics to tell if there is any pigment or not. I believe that true albinos will have pink eyes, where as Russian White Elk have regular brown eyes. There are game farms in Canada that have both types available to hunt. Whichever they are, I wouldn't hesitate to stick an arrow in either of them.
some things in nature should be left alone, some hunters may say that "if i dont take this animal then it would die naturally, and who would see that," well, thats how nature works, things live and die either by our hands or natures, what so wrong with nature takeing its course. I belive that this is one animal I would have to let nature take back, there is a fine traditional elk in the picture also to take for dinner.
Bang! Bang! Yum. Yum.
would not hesitate to take one. It would probably be a once in a lifetime occurance.
OK folks lets look at this from both sides , if no one takes this trophy who's going to see it after it dies a natural death ?If MR. WHITEY passes close to me then many can enjoy his beauty for years to follow,
dang right i would shoot either of these bulls. an elk is a trophy, but an albino one would be the trophy of a lifetime
They won't las5t long if predaters are in the area, so I 'd say put them in the freezer and on the table. MMm good.
Albinism is a genetic deffect so why would you choose to let them go so they can breed. I would shoot them as soon as a broadside shot was presented. I feel the same way about albino whitetails it's just a deer not a mythical creature. I would not want these bulls to have the chance to spread their defective genes.
Is the one on the right a piebald elk. The one on the left is amazing with the white rack but the one on the right seems as if it is just white coated. But they are both gorgeous bulls.
They deserve to roam free, they are a natural wonder, great trophys, but there are other great trophy's out there, let them breed, more albinos will be seen in future, smart not divulging location it would be inundated with hunters, I am one but I have also learned to appreciate the wonders of nature.
Sorry guy but the one still in velvet would be on the ground in a heartbeat.
I think a shoulder mount and the rest of the hide tanned and placed across the footboard of my bed.
The real treat would be in my freezer
Absolutely awesome! It would be very tempting to take
one, but considering the rarity of albino elk, I don`t know. I would have to be in that situation.
To see one would be awesome, too see two. Wow.
Amazing photos. I don't think I could take one down if I had the chance. It's like killing a unicorn.
We don't really have too much to go by with these photos other than the fact these bulls are reportedly free-roaming elk.
