This was shot in a 3 tine area just curious what the take will be on it..
I would call that bull a 3x3. If I remember correctly a tine must be longer than it is wide to count.
"I refuse to let the things I can't do stop me from doing the things I can"
No way, although from the looks of the rack he needs removed from the gene pool
Hunting regs, page 33, Identifying a legal moose antler:
A point or tine is an antler projection at least one inch long, and longer than it is wide, with the width measured one inch or more from the tip.
Without a tape my first guess is that is not a 4 brow tine bull. I think that is my second guess too.
I would definitely walk away from it in a 4 brow tine area. My thought is, if you have doubt than don't pull the trigger. I don't like that feeling and it's not worth the mistake of shooting a sub legal animal.
It appears to look legal for a four brow tine area, only problem, the moose has to be dead to be sure.
I would not shoot it in a 4 brow tine area. If you are not 100% sure then it is legal then let it walk. You are betting a lot more than your rifle on it.
That would depend on how far you have to sneak it out o.O Would it not count as a 50 incher though?
I would say yes but wouldnt chance it. Let it live, go eat some bacon, and try for a bigger one the next day.
Bacon makes everything better. And Dr. pepper. **** I'm hungry and thirsty after reading this thread.
Interesting rack, but I would say no, it's not legal. Right or wrong, I wouldn't take the shot.
Another no. Those itty bitty points look wider than they are long on the puter.
Nope. Needs to be longer than wide.
I would have to say no but I had to look at it for a while
I don't think it legally has four brow tines and I don't think that it is a 50" rack. I would not shoot it. Last year we took a bull with 3 brow tines and a bull with 4 brow tines in a 3 brow tine 50" area and both were 48". Both looked like 50-55" bulls but we would not have taken them without the brow tines. We passed two more bulls with two brow tines that were 46-55" bulls and ended up taking a 68" 229 B&C bull. Sometimes it pays off to wait for a better one.
