At first look I miscounted points. The 5’s are longer than the 4’s. 👍

Stud bull and really cool pics. I assumed those were trail cam pics. Are they not?

To me it looks like a spike with a set of sheds zip tied on.  It's pretty common in several areas, if you zoom in you can see the zip ties at the base of the antlers.  Many people wonder why there are no spikes, if you haven't seen this before you would assume they go from calves to branch antlers in one year.

Great pictures, what a dandy bull! I would be really excited to have a bull tag this year with the early snow forecast this weekend. The Observatory tag holders should be licking their chops!!

To some this might seem a bit snarky, but Bango is absolutely correct.  We need to change our thinking.

Beautiful bull, thank you for kindly sharing.

I guess it's possible.  Just assumed it's the same one, though body of the bull in pic 2 looked bigger.  Here's another pic.  This pic and first 2 pics were taken same day, within 2 hours of each other.  So I assumed it to be the same bull. 
And Yep, got drawn for Bull Elk Tag in my 3rd choice GMU in 2017 in Goose Prairie.  Saw 5 bulls on that hunt and had to pass on a 5pt on the 5th day as it was out of my range at 800 yards. No other shot opportunities.  Huge storm moved in on last 3 days of the hunt and at times couldn't see 100 feet in front of me.  Was hunting pretty high elevation that year.
