So do you guys reckon those two are 1 1/2 YO or 2 1/2?
If I were of a mind to fill a tag and were given the choice, I’d take the 4-point just to prevent any discussion after the fact. At the beginning of a trip, both get a pass from me because nothing ruins a Hunting trip faster than punching a tag. Of course, God Willing, my brother would be there and I could let him take it. I owe him a pack-off anyway. ;)
Given a chance at only the 3-point, I think I might need more time to think about it than Reality would allow.
But in the last 4 days of a trip, the only reason to pass would be the Legality piece. So I would be looking VERY closely.
That 3 is toooo close for me. I passed a shot years ago on a spike with 10 inch brows. He was just ugly. Talked to the local warden who had seen him as well and he said it was the most unique bull he had seen and would shoot it over a 300 inches. Different strokes.
Jaq I call the highway patrol every time I break the speed limit so yes I’d turn myself in immediately. I will say someone’s measurement on a tine can vary more than a 1/4 from person to person. Do you measure on the top, bottom or side?Better just pass and wait on 8” brows to be sure.
Link, this is a little more than speeding, but I get it. I keep remembering Curt Wells' Bowhunter moose hunt when he and his guide misjudged a bull by an inch and he turned himself in to AK G&F. Got a fine, but I don't remember whether they confiscated the moose.
