Hey everyone it's getting close to elk season. Cnelk (Brad) used to post these type of threads. I shot this bull at 11yds in 2009. I wasn't being to picky, because I started a new job and had only four days to hunt. This is the best picture I have. It's been officially scored by a P&Y scorer. I'll post the score sheet in a few days. Guess away!

Net 268", hard to tell for spread, so I guessed 31 or so.

Well I guess if you only have 4 days it'll do.

I won't even try to guess cause I'll be way off. But I'd shoot that one on the 1st hour of a 2 week hunt without hesitation.

Since people are usually behind longarming I try to use the head and ears as reference points. I can’t see them. So no guess But as said, I wouldn’t pass him that’s for sure.

MA-PA- I was going to go with 327" :) I'll bump it up a hair so there's a little more spread between our guess! Looks like a shade under 330". Great 5ths, nice 3rds, good mass, good main beam length. Hard to judge spread from pic. Tremendous bull either way.

Yeah, I can't imagine passing on that bull. I'll guess 318. Nice bull Craig.

Took a second look. I would like to change my score to 285. When do we find out?

From: Bowboy
13-Aug-21
The actual gross score is 278 4/8 and the net is 268 7/8. This was a solo hunt in WY of course. I'll post another one soon for you guys to guesstimate.

From: Stoneman

Wow, other than the weak brows where is he short?

Score sheet for our education?

From: Rickm

So 265 revised to 285 is pretty much spot on! Nice bull. I would have shot on day one. Congrats.

Here’s the score sheet

The same age bull as Craig's out of most CO high country units I hunted wouldn't make P&Y (260 net minimum). They'd come in around 245 - 250...in my experience. WY bulls definitely seems to grow a bit more antler versus CO, at least in the high country.

From: Kurt

Excellent to see an actual score sheet on the elk! Sure was a lot of +300" guesses off one side view photo. Shows how difficult it can be to guess the score of a critter in the field from a quick look.

From: Jaquomo

Also, I forgot that Craig is like 4' tall.. ;-)

14-Aug-21
^^^^Hahaha!

Oh, wait a minute…he’s taller than me. Never mind.
