I'm holding a Colockum archery bull tag. Shooter? Thoughts? Score guesses on him?

That's a fine bull. Definitely a shooter.

I don't guess scores but that's a shooter in my book.

It wasn't long ago that I had an easy shot at a couple of smaller bulls with a permit tag that I didn't think were shooters.  In the end I didn't turn out to be a shooter that season and my freezer has a lot of empty space as a result.  That's a good bull, definitely a shooter.

It's up to you if it's a shooter or not. If it's me he is dead.

Nice bull, shooter for sure.  You may want to take a picture of him to the local bio and see if they can tell you when it was tranquilized.  The meat is no good for a certain period of time after being darted.  My cow moose last year had a collar and the ear tag had info on it to check when it was darted on their website.  Not trying to scare you, but that was my experience (concerned me a bit at the time, but all was OK).
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

You cant shoot him!!!!  He is someone's pet!!!!  If you took another picture as he passed you would see the 10 year old boy with the leash attached to that collar!!!!! :IBCOOL:

I have the tag as well, he is 340 for sure if its the bull I have seen with a collar.  I was hoping to hang my tag on that guy.  There could be two with collars up there I guess, maybe it is a different bull.  Good luck and send me a PM if you get in a real bind I may be able to give you a hand.


Edit, just downloaded the photo and blew it up.  Is he missing his G3?  Might actually be a second bull.  And that one might be under 340 the closer I look.  Definitely over 310 and I am shooting anything over 310 that gives me a good shot.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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