Russian or Siberian 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 solid white coat of hair. Some have Grey faces and legs and a cream color coat. The average weigh of 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.
NOTE: Presently we are not taking bookings for White Elk as we have a 5 year waiting list with our repeat guests. Sorry.
