Fishermen haul in monstrous skull and antlers of extinct Irish elk

Well, not a hunting article and was extinct 10,000 years ago when trees started to grow.........so can't blame it on mankind.

It's only true if it's on this forum where opinions are facts and facts are opinions

    Looks similar to the rack on Bullwinkle J. Moose! Cool find, though. A live one that was killed by any people back then would have fed the village, I bet.

    And don't be denying that man didn't cause that climate change. Those folks back then driving their gas guzzling SUVs and burning all that coal in the electric plants caused all those trees to start growing from the climate change they caused doing that mess! :D   :D  :D:D   :D

    That would be a hell of a find...and not fossilized.
    All of that ice age megafauna was amazing...

    A big bull moose can still get up to six feet wide and I'm pretty sure they live in forests with trees so I don't buy into the "theory" about trees causing their extinction.
