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.

Thats cool.  I'd like to see them get mounted.  Those are some realy nice looking sheds.  Where did you find them again?

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!
