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!
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.
