Safari Club International recently confirmed that the elk scored an astounding 426 1/8 points---408 points using Boone and Crockett's scoring system---and easily took the record for the largest elk ever harvested by crossbow. “This...

New Wisconsin Law Offers Great Potential for Urban Bowhunting

May 7, 2014
