Welcome SoCo! I'm pretty new to this site also but it's a wealth of info. It would be interesting to start a thread with the geographical locals in the area. Just to see where folks are and how spread out they are. Talk with you soon.
I live in So Cal now, B&R in Gunnison but still do all my hunting in CO and UT. I would love to move back to CO but hard to pass up the summertime in So Cal. San Diego women drive me crazy. Looking forward to another great year of hunting in the Great State of Colorado.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all
Ripstop, thanks for the welcome. Just curious, what was against the norm? Seeing the elk or the bunny hunting question? The snow all pretty much melted in Pueblo by the weekend.
Sorry for not being clear in my response. I didn't mean your post being against the norm, I was referring about posts in general. This is a really good forum with a lot of knowledgable people who give anwsers as if you were face to face.
As a Taxidermist I look at hundreds of Whitetail Bucks every year. I know that I have seen many different ways people judge the size of racks on live deer. I think for the most part they all are pretty close. I'm going to give you some measurements that I have noticed being right on in just about every deer. We have used it in the last couple years and have only been off by about 5-6 inches. We do study the deer while bowhunting so we get a little more time to look at them....
