With all the guess the score going around I thought I would post this. I am dropping this head off today to be scored and will pick up hopefully later in week and will post gross and net score then.
Im no expert but I’ll guess 285” gross.
I think links close, 285.
Really quick 16”, 8”, 7”, 16””, 8” for point length 38” beam 7”,6”,6”,5” mass 117” x 2 -234” Plus spread maybe 40” 274”
280 gross. Less than 6-7 inches of deductions most likely.
Also having this whitetail scored and a bear skull. So guess on whitetail if you want.
I'd guess it's a 285" gross bull. Very nice.
293 bull gross. pretty wide i think. buck gross 137
Dave’s guide: “340in.... shoot!”
I'd say the buck is 135 with 6ish inches of deductions.
282 bull, 138 whitetail. Gross scores. Both great animals. The left antler on the whitetail will goof the net score.
Dave's team of guides are arguing over the bull's score, but all three agree he's over 300.
430 combined - I got the bull closer to 300 than everyone else.
Bull at 290, buck at 135 gross
I think guys are missing the length of the main beams of that Whitetail..
We will soon find out but if my do it myself scoring is on. Most are closer on elk than deer.
124-3/4” net on the whitetail (if I shot him).
270' ish on the Bull. 145' ish on the whitetail. Gross scores.
Whiteys width steals his mass and length from your eye.
280” on elk, and 141” on the whitetail
280 gross on elk, I've never hunted whitetail, so I have no clue, but he looks like a dandy to me. Congrats.
274" and 140" both gross
Great animals! Congrats, they should both make pope. Well done.
If you had a good time, made a good shot, recovered all of your meat I would score that bull or any other a solid 10. Your memories and adventure won't change by pulling a tape on him... JMHO
285 elk, 142 deer gross scores
Bull somewhere near 290. I think they are hard to judge from pictures. A main beam length would really help. He might scratch 300 but I think he will fall short. Wild guess on the whitetail at 140
Both great specimens I hope you enjoyed the hunts
C'mon John, solve the puzzle.
I am picking them up on Sunday. I don't know the answer until then. But my guess on elk is low 280s gross and net low to mid 270'. On whitetail I am guess gross to push 150 and net to be about 140. He has a broke g1 and g4 that will hurt each. Bear that I did not post pic of to be around 19''
Buck is 136. I'm from IL so no idea on elk
Here official numbers:
Elk: 279 3/8 Gross - 272 4/8 Net
Deer: 148 4/8 Gross - 139 5/8 Net
Bear was 19 3/8
Only off by 1/2 inch on the bull, but wow did I miss the mark on the buck. I guess looking at him now I underestimated the lengths of his G2s and G3’s.
Thanks for sharing and congrats on the fine critters
Off 2” on the bull and 1” on the buck, not bad. Great animals and the euros look great!
Got close on the bull. I should've known on the buck - I have one with very close configuration, wide with a broken G3, with almost identical inches.
Nice critters, John.
I did guess the bear exactly right, though!
Great set! Congratulations on 3 very good archery trophies!
