    2x3 brow tines in unit 13. Sorry for the blurry spotting scope photo, any thoughts on width?

    Hard to tell from the picture. While hunting in unit 13 this year, the kids with us shot a 3 brow tine bull that measured a solid 58". Wish I had been able to get pictures, but he was a good looking bull. They are out there!

    I would guess 55. Tips out pretty decent which gives some extra width.

    My hunting partner and I watched him for a while. I figured he'd was probably legal but was close enough we didn't want to risk it.

    Maybe you got a 59" cause folks are letting iffy Bulls walk and its producing some better Bulls to choose from?! Congrats on your moose!

    Well I guess I must not be looking at this pic right, because to me that head looks pretty big and the rack pretty small. I'm thinking he "might" make 50....
    Sheep hunting...... the pain goes away, but the stupidity remains...!!!

    The photo is tricky. But I agree, the head looks pretty wide (10-inches) which makes the rack between 45 and 50 inches. I would have passed. In fact, I passed on one last week for the same reason ... Too close to call. See photo.

    The horn on his left side looks like it rolls up instead of flaring out like the right side. I'd put this bull right in the 50-52" range. Hard pic to judge from though
