    Default Another rack judging trivia

    These rack judging polls are educational and can be entertaining, so here is another one. Would you shoot this bull in a restricted area, if so how wide is he?

    Where's the Bull ? all I see is antlers hard to judge without a reference object So I would pass

    It is tougher without the head as a reference, but given those two tines that stick a ways out to the side, I'm saying he's legal. 54".

    I figure 6" of fur, on my puter that's 1 thumb width. Rack is 8 1/2 thumbs wide for a total of 51".

    While I do have access to this same measuring device in the field, I would likely pass on this guy. (heck, why not, I've passed on everything I ever saw in Ak!)

    Still, Had I harvested it I would be very happy to find it was over 50 and happy to show it on my wall.

    Shooter, no doubt, tougher to judge without the head for me. I'll put it about 63".

    I'm with 338WM. I'm guessing 66". Those points on each side really kick out.

    i am normally stricktly a browtine hunter only, but, those two tines that stick way out would probably change my mind and i would say that he was probably a shooter. I am going to guess around 54"

    Looking at the photo, I would guess 61".

    Those tines that stick out would be tempting, but I would pass. I just don't trust my eye that much. It does look to be over 50.

    56" assuming the fur in the middle is roughly 6" wide. Mostly just a guess at this point.

    Default Wide enuff!

    Well, apparently he was wide enough as someome already "Et" him and the law did not grab the rack assuming he was in a 50 plus area???
    My guess low 50's however I would not shoot with the info we have - need a moose attached to feel better....
