    Default First Impressions.....

    If you were to see this bull running across in front of you, would your first impression be is he 50" or not?

    I'm not asking if you should shoot, wait for a better look, "I need to see brow tines," or anything else. Just use your gut on this one for a quick first impression. Do you think he's 50...???

    Sheep hunting...... the pain goes away, but the stupidity remains...!!!

    From first impression, I would say just short. Definitely would stick around to get a better look. I am pretty conservative about my judging so it would have to be pretty convincing.

    Hey Honey, grab my rifle and the tape measure. I see a 51.5 inch bull running towards the birch trees. After I drop him I'll measure and see how close I am.

    Innocent (sublegal) until proven guilty (legal). I guess I'm the only one who voted no. So spill the beans already. How big is he?

    Gut says "ive seen 60" bulls with less bone on their heads than that" my guess is he's legal.

    I'm thinking no…rear quartering always makes 'em look bigger than they really are.

    Serious 50" potential but impossible to tell from the angle. I would lean more towards yes than no, but would definitely need a straight on look to be sure. As has been pointed out it looks like his left palm curls in, but he has nice long points that could give him those extra inches to be over 50.

    Not from that angle. So no...

    Not until he turns facing towards or away, but I am making sure there's a round in the chamber in the meantime..

    I would say he is 50+ due to the tines on both sides? But this is why i try to hunt in any bull tags or areas? So in my usual hunting area is legal for sure.

    Yes.
    Do you know what he actually was/is?

    just over 50 mostly due to those long tines on the outside..
    both sides are wider than the pams..


    guess would be 52 to 56 inches...


    good photo though, I would have been reaching for a harvesting tool, not a camera- if in season...
