Illinois hunting and fishing

Ryan and Josie Muirhead of Roseau, Minn., display the massive rack of a bull elk in East Grand Forks, Minn. Ryan was hunting deer with a muzzleloader in Kittson County in northern Minnesota on Dec. 12 when he and a couple of buddies came across the bull lying on its back with its antlers mired in the mud after tripping while crossing a fence. Muirhead and seven others managed to free the elk, but it died two days later. The rack was green-scored at 456 1/2 inches. If the score holds to become official after the mandatory 60-day drying period, it will become the No. 5-ranked elk rack in the world. (AP Photo/Grand Forks Herald, Brad Dokken)
