Field Judging Elk and Scoring Elk Antlers 2

Practice Field Judging and Scoring Elk
Here is a big bull elk from Arizona Unit 10 that was filmed by Darr Colburn of Colburn and Scott Outfitters.  Darr was able find and film this bull many times prior to the start of the archery elk season.  This footage was taken in Early September 2011.  Unfortunately, this bull was wounded by another archery hunter and was not recovered. The head was found and the Arizona Game and Fish Department ended up with it.  The rack was then auctioned off to the highest bidder.  Darr was able to put his hands on the bull and run a quick tape so we have a pretty good idea what the actual score is.  After a few days we will post the actual scores and you can compare your numbers to the real thing.  Watch this video and this is your chance to try to Field Judge this great Arizona bull on the hoof.  Whether you use the Estimating Actual Measurements method (EAM) or Estimating Shortest Points method (ESP), give us your guess of his total gross score (1), Guess his Point length per side and total (2), Guess his Main beam length for each side and the total of both (3), guess the mass per each side and the total (4) and his Inside spread (5).  We will post the actual score and more pictures in 24 hours.  We will also breakdown our estimates.  Click the post title above to leave a comment or put your score on our facebook page
