Nice sheds Sern, I saw them Saturday great bull for sure, those genetics are sweet, I get excited just thinking about the possibilities for future bulls, my sheds ranked 7th and 8th in the non-typical category, now that the G-3 bull is dead I can share a few pictures.

The sheds photo has been around for a few years now.
:dunno:
Amazing bull that I never get tired of seeing photos of.
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

I got to see the pair of top ten sheds at the Sammamish Valley Chapter RMEF Banquet last night.  Very beautiful antlers.  I am always impressed how some Washington elk can grow antlers that big.  Thanks for displaying them, it made the evening more noteworthy.

It was our pleasure to share them with everyone! Washington state has world class animals. You never know what you will come across when you spend time outdoors. That's why we enjoy it so much!

i want to see a bull like that while elk hunting
You know your hunt went well when you had a shot that was unethical and you never took it, even if you never got your bull.

Who keeps records of sheds and where do you have them scored? Where is the record book kept?

Washington state big game book. You can have them scored at the sportsmans shows.

There's also this:
http://shedantlers.org/

They would score as the #2 set in the matched set category it looks like...scroll down.

I've got a set I'd like to score and compare to this list. I see the base circumference listed on there, does anyone know if that is a measurement in addition to the four circumference measurements or just the one between g1 and g2?

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the base would be the 1st of the 4 circumference measurements.

Yeah, the first of the 4 circumference measurements "H1". Between the "G1" and "G2".

 :yeah:
Between G1 and G2 is a whole lot different than the base measurement for the H1. You could be talking 4-6" in many cases.
