Took me long enough but finally had my 2019 Oregon bull scored for Pope & Young this week at Deep River Bow Club in Valpo. Had several postponements due to Covid. To my total surprise, his mass overwhelmed the scoresheet to the tune of 332”+ gross. I almost passed on this guy, thinking he was only ~310”. Very glad now that I let the arrow fly. I was unaware mass could make such a big difference in score.

I’ve gotten so out of shape due to this Covid. Plus wheels falling off. The latest being a partially torn Achilles. First time in 40 years I went without a gym membership. Not sure how much time I have left chasing these critters in the mountains. It’s a young guy’s sport.

Very nice Ken!

Rocky or Rosie?

pav, All the folks out there who saw him thought he was a Roosevelt due to the mass. But no he’s a Rocky. Taken in the extreme NE corner of Oregon.

Yes, photos can be very deceiving. I actually have a 350" bull from Nevada that's mass is not even comparable to this one.

Working out for the mountains again now. This time Western Colorado near Grand Junction. I expect to have a much better hunt than Oregon for sure. Bulls aren't much bigger than this, but a lot more of them!

Congrats on a SUPER bull, sir! Enjoy what hunting you can while you can. Wondering myself these days if even local deer hunts will be a possibility for 2022. Baby steps coming back from heart issues, now doc says my knee has to go, maybe both. LOL. Dang. Come on, Lord. A little help here? I wish you the best of luck. Stay at it! Prayers for a full recovery! Take it from me your brain will tell you that you can do something or another and your body will say......go ahead, dummy. LOL God Bless Steve
