    Default Moose Antler Width - How wide?

    OK guys - another moose antler width post.

    I was fortunate enough to harvest a very nice Shiras moose here in Colorado on Oct 1st.

    Any guesses on the width? I know what it is but there is no prize.

    Hint-
    It is between 42" - 52" and is on the inch

    Default Nothing to tell

    Did a recon trip into a potential new moose hunting area this weekend and saw this one and some others. I usually hunt "any bull" areas so I don't have to look at this from 300 yards away and listen to the dueling angels on my shoulder.

    I figured more than 50" based on the "Ten inches for the head rule", but I don't know that I'd pull the trigger unless I could determine brow tines to be for sure.

    One of the best Shiras moose I have seen! A true trophy. He fits right in with some of the better bulls to be seen in the Great Land.

    Another hint -

    It's in the 40's

    Since it isnt an AK moose or hunt, I prob could post in the other section "Out & About" but I have already posted many more pics and the story on another forum [Elk Hunting]

    You can view the past several months of prep or just jump to the last pages.

    Here is the link

    I was at 9700ft just North of Rabbit Ears Peak - SW of Walden,CO.

    I'd say 51"s, since it's a Shiras moose and not an Alaska/Yukon, the distance between the ears and width between the eyes are different so judging it that way won't work, at least for me it doesn't.
