      It looks like it has a good spread. I'm guessing 56".

        Yes. Legal. Over 50".

          No on the brow tines and yes on the width.

            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.

              Yes, but the average joe, well, me at least, I never see more than 2 bulls a year anyway, out behind the house, and I can't afford to go any where to hunt, so i take the first legal one I see.

                  I would pass; tines don't look longer than wide.
                  If you got to look that hard let it go.

                          Well, if that lic plate is 10in wide then Stid is very close at 58 - that should be a rule all moose have plates attached maybe???

                            Tough angles to get a good idea of the spread. Someone gave me the rule never judge a moose from the back they always look bigger and that's the angle on the truck bed. The best pic is the one of the moose laying on the ground. No way am I seein 58 inches of spread on that moose. I would go high 40's, 48 or 49 inches. Could be 50, but in a 4 tine area that would be a close call and I wouldn't risk him going 50. If its a 3 tine area he obviously has that and would be a dead moose.

                                I blew this one, glad I didn't bet my rifle and wallet on it.

                                I'm going to have a beer now to wash down some HUMBLE PIE.
