These were the last big Refuge bulls, took this pic 10 years ago. One on the left might have hit 270”..

Lol.
Good luck.
Hunted there for 40 years and moved on a few years ago.
When big bulls used to come out of there I would usually see a picture or hear a story. 270” ? Very very few.
A couple back in the day.
Hoof rot has numbers way down.

IMO from that pic no way all 3 are over 270. I would go maybe 200 on the middle bull after he knocks off velvet, if the bull on the right is a 5x5 225ish, maybe 250ish if he is hiding some extra. I do think the bull on the left might be a bit better than 270 but not by alot. Regardless all 3 are no brainers. Cool shot in the fog as well :tup: I was forutnate to see the bull on the left in the refuge during season, gorgeous dark rack. Regardless of score he was a great repesentation of a classic rosie.

Ya I think you’re pretty spot on with the scores. Left one may push 290 I in my opinion though, he was big. It takes a heck of a roosevelt to score 270. This one we killed 10 years ago or so scored 272.

Lot of hoof rot down close to the river. You're probably better off coming in from the north.

My partner and i scouted 506 last year before everything was shut down for fire danger. We saw probably 8-10 bulls in 3 days and not one was above a big 4x4. they had some growing to do still but nothing near even 200.

Use the search for that one. Plenty of posts about that permit from I and many others who have given our experiences on that permit.
