Found a unique one
« on: September 17, 2017, 04:09:06 PM »
A friend and I have been very close to this bull a few times.  Once ranged at 29 yards but no shot opportunity.

Any guesses on age or score from the HW crowd?

He looks like he has 3 nostrils? Or took an antler through the nose? Nice looking bull!

He'd score really high next to mashed taters with bacon rolled around his round steaks.  :cue:

I guess him at OLD and HUGE.

Good luck.   I hope you get to put a tape to him.

320-330 gross, old big bodied bull, but really only a 5x6 with some little stickers, and not exceptionally wide, but he is heavy and long. A shooter for sure. Good luck

358. 20"+ thirds will help. Lots of mass on this one. The length on the top is going to hold him back a little.

This is my guess....Maybe 340 on a long day

This bull is a prime example of why sometimes the score doesn't matter at all. He probably is a 330 to 350 bull, but his character makes him more appealing then larger bulls.

I think those thirds give back anything his tops give away.  I think he'll be 350" plus.

He is a shooter for sure, if you think about him having no little character stickers, he would just be a five point, and there are not many five's that score much above 320 and even less that would go 370, if any. But his character makes him a stud old bull, shooter for sure

Looks 340 gross to me, but score doesn't matter.  Stud bull.
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

He's only really 5-with-stickers on his passenger side.  Driver's side he is a more than solid 6 point.  Plus the extras.  Looks to me like a 360's class bull that is only missing one foot long tine (his G5).  I'd still put him at 350".  I still think his thirds and his mass will make up for whatever he lacks on that 5 point antler.  Plus, if we are talking gross score, those stickers will add a couple of inches too.

I'm going with 350" give or take 10" if we're talking gross scores.
Tons of mass, those 3rd's and all those little extras will add up quick.

Might need extra salt to eat that tough old critter.  Would score number one in my book.

His backend would screw up his score, but I sure the heck wouldn't care

I think Miles needs to shoot this guy so we can settle this dispute regarding the score... :chuckle:

Looking forward to the story. And the official score.
