I am going to gues 349, but I tend to be a conservative *censored* and elk are my weakest animal.

M-ray I thought the 354 1/8 guess was someone we know :) There are some really good guesses here. I also tried the drop the range finder off the cliff trick and my yardage pro held up. Luckily it stayed in the case.

I second Bone's question, lets hear the tale of the tape.
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.
If I ageed with you, then we'd both be wrong.
You are never to old to learn something stupid.

I was waiting for someone to ask ... do you want to know now????
 I gotta go and I am a bit disgusted with another issue so I may not be posting for awhile but I will tell you the eye guards come in at 17 & 17 5/8 and the seconds are 20 3/8!

I know but I'm just going by what everyone says is the standard for drops. I layed it out as best I could so it looked as natural as it would on the animal and I came up with 48" so I loose 8" right off the top just because they are sheds.

haha I know I am just giving you a hard time!

Does that 40" go for like say a small set of 4 or 5 point sheds as well?? Because we all know they are lucky to make 30 - 35" inside??
