Check these Elk out

A couple of nice 5x 6 Both would have been 6x6 if they both were not missing a brow tine on the left side. Not sure what they score maybe you can help me out.  I hydro dipped the heads.  The bigger one had a really nice base and was really heavy.

I like how those turned out. 

I like how those turned out.  I am not big on Euro mounts, but that hydro dip stuff is interesting for sure.  Is that something you do by yourself, at home?  Very nice!

I don't have any clue how to score elk, so I wouldn't even hazard a guess.  However, those are both nice bulls!  Congrats, and thanks for sharing.

Wow that one you are holding

Wow that one you are holding is a really good elk.  I would venture to say that he may go in the 330-350 range.  The smaller one hard to tell but maybe the 280-300 range.  I have to ask but did you find those both here in Colorado?  And where they together when you found them.  I have found similar stuff but not uaually close together or at the same time frame.  Congrats on a great find.

I don't know much about

I don't know much about scoring either but I would make a guess close to the 330 range. No matter what they are both nice bulls. I do european mounts all the time but don't know much about hydro dipping. I like the way it looks I'll have to check it out more.

  Those are two awesome

 

Those are two awesome mounts - especially the larger one!  I wish I knew of that hydro-dipping before I took my antlers off of the elk head I harvested as that would be one cool mount versus the simple plaecment of them on an oak shield mount.  Darn it!  Maybe the next set I get this is what I do.  Just awesome mounts you have there - thanks for sharing!
