Seaview's Rusty Lindberg: World record hunter and official measurer

<I>KEVIN HEIMBIGNER photo</I><BR>Rusty Lindberg stands between world-class mounts of a Rocky Mountain elk, a moose and a Roosevelt elk. Lindberg has several world-class animals to his credit and has been official measurer for many more.

SEAVIEW - Charles "Rusty" Lindberg shot his first buck in 1958, a five by four black tail, and later that fall bagged a 3-point Roosevelt's elk. Rusty was 12 at the time and learned at that early age, "Guns and shooting are my cup of tea. I love to hunt, especially for trophy animals."

Rusty's love of hunting large animals has paid off in nine world record-sized elk, antelope, caribou, and deer. He almost gets as much kick out of measuring world-record animals as he does hunting them. In 1984 Mr. Lindberg took time off from his job as a police officer to become one of only five official measurers in the state for groups such as Boone and Crockett (rifle), Pope and Young (archery), and Long Hunter's Society (muzzle-loaders).
