  • 70 days until moose season.

    Time to start guessing about antler size. How bout this guy? He looks like he's right on 45" right now to me.

    It also looks like he only is going to sport 2 brow tines (but should easily pass the 50" requirement by the time the season opens). Is there going to be an open season in Kincaid Pk this year?
    Love that dropper point developing on the right antler. Nice pics.

      Naaa, he's in Bear Valley, not Kincaid. I wish they would never have issued a single building permit for Bear Valley and just made it a bowhunting game preserve.

        that little guy is always hanging around the asphalt section of that road. hiking up Mcue peak the other day, I saw a massive bull, already sporting antlers that were hovering around 50 inches, even not being fully formed antlers. He was bedded in an alpine pasture, with hemlocks providing cover.

          my first impression was 45" is about right but run a tape measure across the screen he could be 52"

            Here's my assessment. 42". That picture wasn't perfectly straight on but pretty close.

              Lower 40's was my guess too...

                Agreed on the low 40's.

                          Ok, how about this guy? 57" on the tape for good visual reference.

                              Hard to tell at this angle whether the brow palms are really as wide as they look. If the sense of scale is correct, and the brow palms are as wide as they look, he appears to be every bit of 60". If not, and the angle is deceiving like I suspect, then he's 55"ish.
