This is a 297 bull that has a broken tine. It would go about 305-310 with a whole tine. If you only have one elk on the wall, a bull with six inch forks will "look" big. It is kind of like shooting a 14 inch antelope. Might not make any record books but will be a good looking trophy to mount.
The way to score an elk is as follows:
B&C score Plus
50 points for public land
50 point for DIY
10 points for getting out of the truck before you shoot
30 point for packing it out alone on your back for over a mile
20 point for not having to lie about where you hit it.
10 points if there was snow on the ground.
5 points if it was raining
