    i agree with bkmail....... if this is a 50" or 3 brow tine area, i would have to get a better look.

    Those are some pretty long tines that are jutting out to the side. Looks pretty good to me, though I'd be taking a closer look before shooting. He would definitely draw my attention, though.

    Hard to tell from those pictures but my gut tells me he's over 50. Mid-50's would be my guess.

    No great angles but going off rack and points he looks like something serious. Just a guess but I'm betting he's upper 50s. I'd say you better get after him and get a good look. As long as he doesn't have short, stubby horn bases he's a shooter.

    the upturned antler palms and low count on browtines, my guess is mid 40s. would need to glass him for a while, but based on that one angle, nope...if you're in a restricted area. any bull area, heck yeah.

    Hard to tell because of the fuzz but he looks top heavy to me. I would put a stalk on him for sure.

    No way I'd shoot that one based on those 2 views. Still the long tines might put him there. He's close.

    I agree with Larry that the palms are angled upwards which makes him not as wide, but if you also look real closely at the first photo you will notice a couple tines that project out and away from the main palms. The width is measured from the widest point, which is not always the same thing as the width of the palms.

    Thanks for all the input fellas.

    I did put a stalk on him but he wandered off into the thick stuff before I could close the distance.

    I wouldn't pull the trigger from either angle. I would guess he is over 50 inches and is legal. I would probably do anything short of killing myself to get a better look. I have a shoulder mount of a bull I took in Idaho on my wall. He is just over 40". That looks well over 10' wider than what is hanging on my wall.
