Its tanned and sorry I dont know the measurement. I was just looking for a general rule of thumb. The elk was a 5x5 I killed at the Sargents in NM

thanks Joe

Here in Texas elk capes trade slightly higher than elk capes in western states because of availability. A tanned mature bull say 30-31 inches which is what I consider average usually trades around $450 here. If a Cape is of exceptional hair quality or an extra large size it would trade for more. Hope this helps.

30" is pretty close, on a 5x from Sargents I'd start around 29". Go too big and the horn to body ratio will look off.



Nose to eye around 11-1/2" to 11-3/4".
