31-32 outside main frame, with both stickers I bet he squares 36 or better.
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

Just playing with the photo, maximum horizontal spread of the mainframe is 165% of the ear tip to tip and sticker to sticker is 182%.  He's alert on the photographer so that tip to tip is less than maximum, I'm going to guess 20" losing 1.5" each ear tipped forward.  That would give him a 33" mainframe and 36" maximum outside spread.

If he had eye guards he'd be a nice one...    :chuckle:   I have little experience judging animals like this, but I estimated his ears at 22" or so, and the antlers appear to spread a good 6" past them on either side, putting him at roughly 34", outside spread, frame only.

I did a rough measurement on the screen and the math put him closer to 38, but I don't think he's that big. I've always been just ok at math.

I'm not overly concerned with his 34" frame but he appears to be saying something?

Dream buck.

No experience guess. 33" frame 37" with kicker.

How big is the driver side kicker?

Outside without kicker is in my head an easy 35"

Impossible to get tired of the bucks you post.  Absolutely incredible how many different whoppers you photograph.  First thing I do when I log on the site is to see if you've posted any new pics. 

As to width on this one, my best guess is about eight to ten inches wider than any buck I've ever seen up close.

He's just a hair shy of 33", without the kicker. :tup: Great buck.
The true eye sees not the despair of its victims, only the elegance of equilibrium. It's a demonstration of superior judgement.

Never mistake motion for action.

Yes.... I'm a hater!

A offer to all HuntWA members. If you don't have something nice to say. I'll say it for you.👍

Math says 33 wide without the kicker, 36.5 with the kicker. Thatís with 20 inch ears which is about as conservative as it gets. I didnít use calipers, but close enough.


20 inches = 23x
.8695
Total width 38
38(.8695)= 33.04 mainframe
