Beautiful bull, good luck this fall and hopefully we'll be seeing a grip-n-grin photo later ............ and it better be a BIG grin!
If you've ever had a wild game roast in your airport carry-on, you might be a redneck.

Stud bull! Look at those thirds. He's easily over 360"!
Based on what?

I habe a love/ hate opinion on this type of thread.  This bull is a dream bull and I might be way off but those throwing out scores should have done rhyme or reason for doing such.  BTW Jackalope, I agree 100%. Buckandbull what are your thoughts?

Its hard to compare measurements when you've held a 400 bull. No comparisons. :chuckle:

For the area of the state I hunt this is a huge bull. I agree it's hard to throw out a score. But it's fun to see what people think. I think he is a 360 plus bull. It will be fun to see how much he grows the next few weeks.

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.
