Alot more than a north slope raghorn or spike?He scores…..
Meh, inches are for the bedroom.
As far as that bull goes, he’s a taker in any Utah unit. 15 years ago, you might have had an argument on units…

A lot more on a mature bull. All tastes the same to me.Meat tastes the same.
Any rag in my freezer lasts over a year. What’s another 30 lbs from a mature bull gonna do in my freezer besides freezer burn?Those week fronts are bigger than most north slope raghorns.
All elk fill a freezer. Just how full? Raghorn or a mature bull? Mine get filled with mature bulls.
45” of extra goes quite a ways.Doesn’t appear to have the main beams or width to be four hundo… 378 to 380
I think you’re right on the money there. That 43” mainbeam on the left side and those fronts and thirds kill him as far as being a 400”er. They gotta have everything to get things to add up that much.Doesn’t appear to have the main beams or width to be four hundo… 378 to 380
Ya, and I would not waste a second trying to figure a score. Shoot first, admire and score latter at camp.Giving this bull 48” mains, 59” of mass that double beam 3rd is gonna carry some chunk on the h-2 measurement, and a 38” spread credit there’s a flare in the beam out towards the end.
That’s a 193” main frame which feels right to me.
Fronts 15” average
193+158=351” main frame 6x6. So, let’s call him a healthy 345” just to be safe.
Now it’s just figuring out how much extra there is. I can’t see that double main being less than 30” that plus the 9” flyer on the left side. Then it’s a 5” in line, 6” flyer on the right 5th and 1.5” sticker off the sword, all up? 51.5” of extra that jumps him from 345” to mid 390’s.
Not a unit in the world where you don’t shoot that bull.
This 390 bull is a fair amount bigger than the bull in question IMO. He is wider, heavier, and better tines.
Pictures can do amazing things to perspective...This 390 bull is a fair amount bigger than the bull in question IMO. He is wider, heavier, and better tines.
I would have guessed about 380. It takes alot to break that 400" mark. People see big bulls and automatically think 400". I bet most people have never seen a TRUE 400 inch bull in person on the hoof. But I would shoot that bull any day of the week on any unit. Maybe I will find one like that in Arizona on my archery hunt in 6A. A guy can dream, right!?!?
This is what I think too. But he’s a tough one to score on the hoof for sureweaker fronts and narrow. Extra points will help. 375 gross
