Lol I know right!! But it was a 14 year tag and his tag so we went on, every buck we saw i continually said to him " wide glide is bigger" lol. From my understanding it was the largest goat killed in Colorado that year. However i cannot confirm that! Still great buck and sexy wall appeal!

That's an awesome looking buck. I'm not good at scoring antelope but that truly is a once in a lifetime trophy! That is the coolest looking goat I've ever seen. Thanks for sharing. BTW do you know what he scored?

well we have a bit of a controversy over the score, we have two un-official scorers who score him at 89 3/4, i think they are within a 1/.4 inch of each other. We have another who scores him at 82, and this guy was an official scorer out of Meeker. I can see some difference by don't understand why such a big difference. But how can i question the official scorer? We were just talking about scoring him tonight as he just got back from the taxedermist. I had him green scored roughly after we shot him at 92. But i had never scored a goat before. Any official scorers on here that could weigh in would be great.

Do you have the papers each used. Wonder why such a difference.

great question velvet, i expected the sheet from the official scorer but he did not provide, i'm a little pissy about the whole deal as we waited the 60 day period, and now of course he will have shrunk some more. But my best friend who killed him is happy with his trophy and that is all that really matters. However, for me personally, i put in a lot of time finding this goat, so i really want to know ;)

So would I lol. I just can't see such a discrepancy between scores. Doesn't make sense. Either way that a big goat, I would have shot him! Lol

I'l just throw a theory out. I have seen some scores on antelope that make no sense whatsoever (too high of a score). On deer and other antlered game you include the inside spread in the total score. When you score an antelope you do measure the spread, but it should not be included in the total score.

I have wondered at times if some people include spread into the score on their antelope.....that's a no no.

m.mcolorado...I have no idea what that antelope scores, but it is an amazing pronghorn whatever it scores. I have shot a dozen or so antelope and ate tag soup on a few occasions looking for a book animal and I would shoot that antelope in a heartbeat.

Thanks Umpqua and i totally agree and yes both greatest inside spread and tip to tip spread are on the score sheet but neither are totaled in the score. Scoring a goat looks pretty straight forward to me on the score sheet. i;m gunna give it a go and see what we come up with. I'll update soon!

Definitely a shooter buck, I'm always looking for the unique buck, not necessarily the biggest.
