Both bulls look to measure perfect on the dinner plate and hanging on the wall. :tup:

I'd shoot one just to verify this. You never can be too sure.

Thats a good idea. Pass me the coordinates of the smaller looking bull and I'll stick him and we can measure him to give you a close estimate of score on the bigger one.  :chuckle:

You bet, anything to ensure a fellow hunter doesn't miss out on an OIL opportunity. This might be the only time to draw such an awesome tag so why fuss over which ones bigger or scores higher when I can assist with a selection. :tup:

Nice bull but I don't think that bull would reach the 380 mark. Fronts are a bit weak and the mains don't appear to be that long. I would put him high 360 to low 370. Reguardless great bull!

You may be right. I have been surprised before. It doesn't take much either way when they are that big. An inch on each point and 6" wider is 20 inches. And that can be pretty difficult to judge.

I'm just going to try to kill him so I can find out for sure.  :chuckle:
thats the best way to find out! Then don't worry about what the tape says? :tup:

Having a blast on the archery hunt, wish it was a muzzy tag. There's some good ones out there for sure. Spent an hour at 100-150 away from a 375 bull yesterday. I could get hi to come closer and I couldn't get closer,57 cows with him, frustrating but tons of fun.

You are going to have a blast!

Heading back out now, here is a link to what will be my story so this thread doesn't get too far off track.

So I've been busy working and haven't had time to post much. I've been out scouting a couple of times during the archery season.

Elk were pretty hush, hush last weekend in the evening where I was at. Sunday morning I went to another spot and got into some bugling action. Sneaked in on a couple of satellite bulls in their beds. A small 6x and a 5x. It was about 8:30 am and I had just herd a bull bulge a few minutes before. As I hiked up a ridge very slowly I stopped to scan the timber above me for any sign of an elk and caught some antlers. Scanning left and right I caught another set of antlers and knew right away there was no herd bull nearby. I had been duped into chasing this bull as opposed to the bugle up above me on large bench. I was directly down the hill from them and knew the thermals were about to switch and I didn't want to spook them as I was trying to get a look at the her bull. So, I cast a cow call back down behind me and to the left, just to see what would happen. Well, the bulls immediately stood up and looked passed me back down the ridge to my left. After about 15 seconds they walked left and headed down over the hill; presumably trying to get down wind of the cow call they had just heard.

Well, not 5 minutes later the thermals shifted and went straight up the ridge. I heard popping down below me but I didn't wait around to see if they would come on in. I was more eager to try and see some bigger bulls so I just had a good laugh at the situation; a situation that would never occur of course in a hunting situation, of course! How awesome it would be if I could time the thermals like that every time?...

Any how I did get some footage of another nice bull; not a shooter as I am guessing him to be in the 330-340" gross range, but still a great bull. He came walking by my buddy (who was archery hunting) and I at about 20 yards on opening morning. Of course!

Here is a video of him.
