    Using my highly accurate B&C measuring system, (an elementary school ruler and my iPhone)... 48in.

    I checked the iPhone app store for a rack measurement app but no-go.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    That is one that could cost ya. I guess him at 49 to 51, I would have to let that one walk away.

    50 1/4 with 2 decent ratchet straps holding it down to a wheeler rack. Not a shooter in a 4 brow tine area. IMO.
