Wow!!!!

There is no way that anyone could convince me not to shoot either of the bulls you video'd.     To me, those are pure studs.

I salute you for your dedication to taking a monster.

This is such an awesome thread.

I hope you choose to continue sharing.

Great thread. Congrats on all the tags. Best of luck and I will let you know what I see during the archery season. Hoping for a 350" bull myself but with a bow and having shot a big bull before anything over 300" that presents a good shot gets the air let out of it.

Congrats on the tag! I'd say your odds are looking pretty good for finding a 300" from I've been seeing.
That's what I think too.

After 300" it gets fuzzy up to 330-340 being able to field judge.  Anything that steps out and makes me say "WOW" I am definitely shooting.

I think what has impressed me the most this year is most everything I have seen has decent thirds and where I hunt that normally isn't the case. Not sure why they are bigger thirds this year than normal but I am happy that the year I have a tag in my pocket the thirds are looking good.

Good luck out there and I will be sure to PM you after my season.  My 15 year old daughter will actually be out during the muzzy season with a cow tag in her pocket.  Maybe we will see you with a tank in the back of your truck.  :tup:

I sure hope so! Good luck to you and your daughter as well!

Awesome Bull! Are you archery, muzzy or the rifle permit? I'd say you have a shooter on your hands there! Shooting from the hip I'd say that's a 360+ gross bull!

Nice! Lets hear it. What's his configuration? Monster 6? Or does he have extras? Any guess on score? Hope he makes it through the archery and one early rifle hunter and you can tag him!

Any pics of him?

That I do. I haven't got them downloaded and resized yet. All I have is a crappy cell pic of a camera pic right now.

He's a big 7x7, but his left side 7th point forms out of the "Y" of his 5th point and main beam so I'm guessing that will make that point nontypical, reducing his scoreable frame down to a Huge 6x6. I haven't had time to really study the pictures yet, but, shooting from the hip, I'd say he has got to clear 380"+ on the gross.

There is a runner up/contender bull also in the same spot that is also a 7x7. He's got a double G3 on one side and a cheater off his G4 on the other. Doesn't have the tine length as the bigger bull, and wouldn't score as well with that plus his goofy tine configuration but sure would be hard to pass him as he's got a lot character.

God only knows where they'll be in 3 weeks even if they do make it through archery/rifle but it sure is cool seeing these monsters and just knowing the potential that's out there.
