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.
