Never thought a 372-7/8 Gross bull with 63-4/8 mass would be this young but I guess it happens or they aged the wrong tooth.

That is a great bull. I would have guessed he was a year or two older...

Wow.  Hard to believe that bull is only 5

I wouldnít trust the tooth aging much but my guess would have been 6.5-7.5. At that point they just donít really grow much. Thatís still a pretty old bull as I would guess the average lifespan is more like 3.5.

One would only wonder if he was survived until 8 - 10 years how big his rack would be.

I just got mine back from my bull shot just before yours.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

Dang yours was older than mine. I really thought it was going to be the other way around.

I was shocked the bear I shot just before the bull was 8. The deer from 2014 was an old warrior, 8 made sense for him.
