Russian White Elk
Found only on a few "Wildlife Preserves" in North America is the gorgeous "White Elk". At Silvertine we have the largest breeding herd of white elk in North America ! Each year we offer a very limited number of trophy size White Elk to sportsman. Our herd dates back to the original herds that was captured from the wild in Russia back in the late 1960's and again in 1970. Imported into North America by a German gentlemen by the name of Wolfgang Such. Although we do have a few albinos, 95% of our herd is colouroids, without pink eyes. This species of elk is the most limited of all the elk to hunt. Procuring a trophy-size set of antlers from this species is even more difficult, as they are not as genetically strong, or have as large a bodied as the standard Rocky Mountain Elk. The White Elk has a solid white coat of hair, cream colored mane, and on average weigh 600-750 lbs. The White Elk grows typical antler formation as the Roosevelt Elk, with some crowning being common. We consider a White Elk that scores over 300 to be a trophy class bull, but we have several each year that will score as high as 370+, making those bulls an extremely rare and coveted trophy for the serious collector. Nowhere else on any preserve will you find a better selection of white bulls than with Silvertine. We are very limited to the number of White Bull Elk we offer to our hunters each fall, and it is recommended that if you want to harvest one of these magnificent elk, you need to consider contacting us right away, as we are often booked out a year or more in advance.
PLEASE NOTE: All exotics must be "pre-ordered" before the guest arrives, and the hunt booked for that specific species. All species of exotics will be of exceptional trophy class, scoring well in the SCI Record Books. Please contact me so we can discuss what your expectations are and what I can deliver. Meat only animals will not be of trophy class, and the price will reflect this.
