Target Acquired!....

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!

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.

Awesome man! Glad you're seeing the caliber of bulls you want to fill your tag with. Give's you so much more confidence passing on those lesser bulls knowing what's out there.

Here is a runner up/contender. He's actually an 8x7 with the stickers and not a 7x7 as I originally thought. He's got the double G3. He's a gnarly looking old bull.

Man both of those bulls in the same spot gives you a pretty fair chance at that 380" mark. Those are both magnificent bulls! Good luck! :tup:

Nice bull but I don't think that bull would reach the 380 mark. Fronts are a bit weak and the mains don't appear to be that long. I would put him high 360 to low 370. Reguardless great bull!

Both are incredible looking bulls. Great pictures you were able to capture of them as well.

You may be right. I have been surprised before. It doesn't take much either way when they are that big. An inch on each point and 6" wider is 20 inches. And that can be pretty difficult to judge.

I'm just going to try to kill him so I can find out for sure.  :chuckle:
