Keep in mind, he is going to polish those antlers and not look near as impressive as he is in velvet. I think it will be tough for him to get past the 350 mark. His tops are holding him back.  Fronts and thirds are solid.

I would say 340's.   He does not have the mass to get him to the 350's+.  Looking at the G3 and G4 they have the lengths  But the tops are not too big. 

Either way,  kill him and let's get him measured.   ;)

What a dandy!! You'll have a great time chasing him this year. Hope you can connect with him! My guess Upper 340s to mid 350s.

I am guessing 350 and really hope you connect so we will know for sure.  I think those main beams are longer then they appear in the side view.  From the front they sweep out pretty wide and I think that big curve is going to add to the length.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

 How old do you think the bull is? His body looks long and lanky. Like old bull going down a bit or younger bull not filled out yet. Don't think he's younger looking at those bases. I'm in the 350 range too.
We give your trophy that final compliment!

Great bull, hope you kill it. The pics are tough to judge from because any tilt in your cam can grow/shrink parts of him. If you can put straight tc pics instead of pics of pics, would be easier to tell. Good luck. I think 357"

Great bull I hope you get him.

340 for sure, might go 350.
