Re: Score this bull

It is hard to say, on the lowers, top looks good. I would say 300-340 depending on the lowers and mass.

Re: Score this bull

This is the bull I ended up killing. Not scored. Saw the Drop tine and thought it was very unique.

Re: Score this bull

That is a nice bull. The drop definitely makes it a shooter. Good job. With this bull you were probably still smiling even after the work was done getting it out. PS you never did give us your guess on the other bull.

On the bull in the video I came up with a low score of 336 with 50inch mains and 22inch 4ths. I was very very happy with my bull and don't regret passing up straight 6x6's that were larger to get him.

Also just to clarify as to why my bull is not being scored is because I killed him on the Governors tag. My issue arises with the fact that most governor tag holders are killing expressly for score and no other reason. I killed this bull on my own on public land without any guides. Just me and a buddy who had never hunted elk before. It was a very fun hunt that ended with great bull. Not many governor tag holders get to say anything other then the guides found the bull, I came in, killed it and that was it.

Re: Score this bull

Your right about that with the tag. The way you did it makes the hunt more memorable than size (just icing on the cake) has to do with it. Of course sometimes the icing makes the cake.
