Can anyone tell me what would constitute an "average" shiras moose rack in northern Colorado? I was successful in the Colorado drawing but all my previous experience with moose has been in Alaska---where a 50" spread/5 brow tines was the minimum considered legal to take.

Yeah Shiras are much smaller than their Yukon cousins.

What unit did you draw? I saw two last year that were easily 50". How many years did it take you to draw? [/img]
