PORTER, Okla. – A pair of hunters were recognized after setting a new state record.

On June 14, two hunters from Muskogee had their elk antlers scored and ended the day as state record holders.

According to the Oklahoma Wildlife Department, Bob Hamlin owns the new typical elk record, which scored 338 4/8, which is six points more than the previous record.

Hamlin said he actually killed the elk 22 years ago, but just submitted it for state-record status.

The first nontypical elk that was submitted for a Cy Curtis Award belongs to Jerry Jaynes. It scored 325 7/8 and was killed in 2005.
