That seems high. That bull has great browtines but the forth & fifth points are too short to score that high. Did you recheck your numbers and measuremnets? How long was his main beams?

How do you score a elk

It is part of the main beam but they still score it alone. I calculated the circumference as the same on both sides, so I didn't figure in any deductions. I guessed 7" per side for the 6th point. If that is the case, I received a total score of 315 4/8 Gross and 308 4/8 Net.
One reason, you could have came up different is you'll need to calculate the inches as 8ths. So a half will be 4/8, 3/4 would be 6/8...etc. I hope that helps.
