    Default Moose Junkies - How wide?

    Came across this Shiras bull moose here in Colorado this past weekend and would like your opinions about how wide he is.

    Thanks!

    I'd say he's 36-40" as I have to take into account its only a Shiras moose. So the body size is deceiving. Had that been an Alaskan-Yukon bull I'd agree more with Vince's guess.

    Shoot it and measure. Your answer should always be "It was 51 even"
    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

    I'm with he is a small bull, maybe going 36". This is another Colorado bull, best picture I have but saw some front views of this guy. Brother watched him from 50 yards and put him at 46" They are a much smaller bodied moose, but this is a stud for CO

    I would have to agree with BAR300 not over 40 if he is not much
