" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

That is one big set of sheds.  Huge!

What are you planning on doing with them?  Keep them around to look at and decorate the home with?

Michelle, I am going to get them scored officially ... the minimum for one side shed in the book is 125" these are 155 4/8 and 154 1/8 so they easily make it. Then I am going to rub them back out to look natural since they are bleached by the weather and last my buddie has a cape from Colorado and I'll have it mounted. I think it is really cool and I want to see it on a mount.

Oh and that third horn I found, I will be scoring that tonite. Let's just say it may not have as strong of 1's and 2's as the matching pair but it has a longer main beam and is almost as heavy as the big boy so I bet it's going to make the 125" minimum easy too!

I was just looking at the pics again and allthough it shows the length well the pics do no justice for it's mass. It has to be seen ... it is just huge up high between the 4ths and 5ths.

Just finished scoring the third shed and it scores 141 2/8! So assuming that the other side would be close and adding a 40" spread credit we are looking at one side of a 322 2/8" bull but I will say when looking at it it looks to be as wide if not wider than the match set so it could gain another 8-10" if on the hoof so maybe a 330 class bull? :dunno: Sure wished I could have found the other side to this one too!

I'm glad I was right on.  Maybe I'll finally get some credit around here for knowing antlers. :)  My name IS BONEADDICT for the simple reason I love them bones.  Fun contest Mray.  That set will look good on a mount thats for sure.

Checked the Washington big game records and I was mistaken it's 135" per side minimum ... oh well they both still make it!
