I have no experience scoring elk either but I do know that this one scores way more than enough than would be required for me to pull the trigger on if I saw him. I have a great tag in October and would love to have a chance at a bull like that one.
I am not the best at scoring, probably becasue that is not something I look for. But I am gonna say that he definetly is a shooter bull and I would say he would go in the mid 350's or so give or take..kinda hard to see how is mass is, but by the look of the picture he has great mass and lenght all the way to the top.
The bull is in Utah. Hopefully somebody gets a shot at him so we can actually put a measuring tape on him. Regardless of what he scores he's a spectacular animal. But just can't fight off the curiousity of trying to guess at what the headgear might score.
Well dad didn't get this bull, but anothehir heck of a good guy in camp did. The bull grossed out at 406" and netted 398 3/8ths. He's got to dry for 60 days, but will easily make the B&C All-Time Record book. The bull was absolutley huge. They lifted him with a backhoe up in the air and I would guess from head to toe, he was roughly 13-14 ft long. I will try to post pictures of him and whatever bull my dad ends up with when we get back to Texas.
Hinge-cutting serves several purposes in regard to improving both whitetail habitat and your hunting experience. There are two main types of hinge cuts including a cut for screening and funnels and a cut for bedding. Hinge cuts for screening and funnels should be done somewhere between the knee and waist to block a deer's vision as well as block a travel path. Hinge cuts for bedding should be done around chest high so that there is room for a deer to bed underneath.
