Guess the score
« on: July 17, 2017, 04:24:18 PM »
Talking with Rainier10 about field judging bulls and pics of this boy came up. have no idea what this bull scores. I kept track of a lot of them in this area and know of a few pig bulls that were killed. As far as I know this bull was never killed. So what's your score? And if you're feeling spunky, give us the measurements on him.
My guess is 370. What say you??

Okay, I know I said in a text that he was over 360 and I would shoot in a heartbeat but now I am putting pen to paper to come up with a more accurate guess.

I am still a rookie and my tag if it has the HSLAH reaction when I see it I am shooting.  This bull has that for me.

I say 53" main beam, typical points are 18,17,14,20,12, four mass measurements of 28" a side and a spread of 42".

Final number 366 and a shooter all day long if he is reincarnated in the colockum this year come Sept 9th.

Edited now that I realize there are two different bull photos

Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

Wait a minute you have pics of two different bulls in there.  The one with the 8th point isn't the same as the first one.  I think I know what that one scores and it is more than 378.  Let me edit my post just looking at the first two pics.

Me :dunno: since there's a lot of confusion on the bulls, just me give me the coordinates to the location of both bulls and I'll determine a score on them. Scientifically, of course.

Well I believe one(the second one) is currently residing above the mantle over a nice fireplace in SE King county. The other one...your guess is as good as mine.

I think Plat could bring them in with one or two of his fire sticks and give and give you a accurate score + or - an 1/8th. So I would be giving him the coordinates ASAP, he is a busy man.

350 is my guess.  Somewhere between 340-360.  The bigger bull I would say is about 360-375.  my guess would be 365

ya, after looking closer at the big boy I would agree he is a bigger than I first noticed.  Where are these elk from?  Not asking for your hunting spot.  Just a Blue MT, Clockum, Yakima, or out of state would be a fine answer.

Not exactly sure. There are 2 that could be him but not 100% sure. In your pic he looks like a 7x7 i have watched the last couple years
