Dang, she could almost use the rack to make a hammock!

This 13 year old young lady from Kalispell shot this record bull elk in the Missouri River Breaks on 23 November. Safari Club Int'l scored the rack at 401 3/4 points. It's likely a State record for a youth hunter, and probably ranks in the top ten ever taken in Montana.
She used a rifle in .280 Remington, make wasn't specified.
When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
You'd have to build an addition onto my house to hang something that big.

Wow, very impressive.

That will go very nicely if she has a wall big enough to hang the darn thing. Good to see youth involved in hunting, and outdoor activities.
Congratulations to her.
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

That's a big sucker. She should be proud.
With 7 1/2 foot ceilings in an apartment the nose of that would be about 3 ft. off the floor. Nice rack, back in the old days that would have made a good Bow, or musket rack.
Any elk that scores over 350 is just huge. This one surpasses the word superhumongus. It tickles me to death to see young kids take up the sport and even better that young ladies are taking up the sport of hunting. Good for her.
A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.
I wonder if a future husband will let her hang it over the fireplace. I bet the smile on her father was bigger than hers.
HELGA: Where are you going?
HAGAR: To sign a peace treaty with the King of England.
HELGA: Then why take all those weapons?
HAGAR: First we gotta negotiate...
There has to be someway she can work that into a scholarship.

I hunted for a few years as I grew up in Libby Montana, 90 miles from Kalispell. Had many a dream of an Elk like that!!! My hat is off to her. Her only problem now is that everything from here on will never measure up to this first one.

Impressive for sure...for a 13 year old? WOW!
Gotta' be a proud dad there...
