How many points do you count?

How many points would you put on each side based on the three photos? He is located in a 3 point min area, not that it should influence your count!

It qualifies as a spike if that's what you are looking for, but you can count points below the ears as antler points

There are two answers, how many points a warden counts and how many points I would claim if someone asked me in a social setting.

These kinds of elk with bad genetics is what you get in spike units that go on for years and years

A strong body makes the mind strong.  As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball and others of that nature are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks.

Spike
Keep the wind in your hair, and the sun at your back.


A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.


What would life be without the thrill of the hunt ?

I count 1 cause it’s a spike with an eye guard. No changing that.
