This one scored 414" so Im pretty sure the one you have a pic of is really close if not over 400"

I would love to see the CERTIFIED panel scored sheet showing this bull to be 414" No doubt it is a great bull, but......

Field judging animals is very difficult, and basically thats what you are doing looking at pic's. The average adult bull is 16-18 inches from between bases to end of nose. Also the top picture shows a 16" steel wheel as a reference. The tailgate is about 50 inches wide. The rear window of the truck is 20 inches tall. Start looking at these numbers and if you know how to score, fill in the blanks and this bull would green score about 380-390. A very respectable bull, but not in the 400"+ class.

Re: Monster elk on trail cam

Lets play a game since I know what both of these bulls score. See who can guess the closest.

Re: Monster elk on trail cam

And I agree with a few of the others that the trail cam bull is 340" MAX. his G1/G2 are 14" tops, his 3rd and 5th points are short, his 4ths are 18 to 20 and his main beams are short. He is a beauty of a bull, but this (post) is about score, not appearance.
