Moorhead Police Lieutenant bags record elk

Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - Moorhead Police Lieutenant Brad Penas may have to add on to his house. Not more children, but an elk.

Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - Moorhead Police Lieutenant Brad Penas may have to add on to his house. Not more children, but an elk.

Take a look at this.

Penas went on his first elk hunt ever and close to home, in Northwestern Minnesota.

And it appears right now that he ended up shooting a record elk for the state; a typical green score of 391.

Translation? A really, really big elk.

Penas grew up in that part of the state and was one of just two hunters in that zone to be drawn for a license.

He got the elk near Lancaster, Minnesota, in Kittson County.

Brad Penas- Bagged Record Elk: “Once I realized the elk was down and realized the hunt was over I let out a big yell and danced around a little bit I don't remember that but I did yelled pretty loud.”

Boone and Crockett will measure the rack after a 60-day drying period.
