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.
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 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 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!
Elk have been killed close to roads where they could be loaded whole into the bed of a pickup. But it doesn't happen often and I'm not sure that is the experience that I long for. The type of elk hunting that I prefer requires rigorous physical exertion that can cripple someone who is not in shape. Being a college hockey player I have to be in at least fair physical condition most of the year but when one of my buddies got back from the Navy Seals he changed the way I think about physical...
