Default Elk Moose hybrid, Melk

When I was on one of my Idaho elk hunts,it believe it was in 97 I read an article in a local newspaper about a hunter killing an animal believed to be an elk moose cross.

The animal had characteristics of both, there was much controversity about it.

The hunting story was lengthy but said the hunter had buggled it in during the Elk rut and killed it with a bow.
It had elk shapped antlers that were palmated.
Some experts speculated it was an odd moose others that it was a cross.
DNA test were pending and were to be publshed later.
Does anyone know about the story and the DNA results?
