The Beaver State Podcast Episode 77: How do you get to be a record bull elk in Oregon?

November 22, 2021

Mark Penninger has been measuring animals for the record books for many years. But a set of elk antlers found by a crew of cone collectors for tree propagation and turned into ODFW, was a true jaw dropper for Penninger, who talks about how he measured the antlers for Northwest Big Game Records Inc. and how they rank as the second-largest typical Rocky Mountain elk antlers ever recorded in the state. Want to learn about how exactly antlers are measured for the record books? This episode is for you.
