    i'll show my inability to score an elk and i'm going to guesstimate a gross of 360 something.

    Just guessing but would think around 400 inch. Any bull in that range must have mass and tine length. Bull has tons of mass but could have better length. All that mass will offset length it needs to hit 400. Great bull and congrats to the hunter on a bull of a lifetime and congrats to LMO on putting the hunter on such a great bull.

    That’s a giant! I’ll bet he pushes 400. It’ll be close. Those guys look small compared to that bull.

    If its a 400 inch then our chances of drawing a tag will drastically reduce because everyone and their brother, mom, dad uncle, aunt and cousins will be applying.

    I'm with 1wildcatfan but I don't think he'll break 360" he's short all over. Main beams are short as well as his 3rds. But he does have some mass. I'd shoot him all day.

    The mass makes them look short. Stay tuned.

    Fantastic bull. I have looked at those photos a dozen times and still don't have a strong opinion on the score. It's difficult to judge based on photos and these photos are particularly tough because there isn't anything to reference length to.
    I agree with some other posters that it has tremendous mass but tine length looks short but hard to tell for sure.
    Thanks for the photos bgKYarcher, I have really enjoyed looking at them. Keep us posted.

    What do you think it weighs? Appears to have a huge body. I'm guessing 700 pounds field dressed hanging there.
