This is a picture taken from my first trail cam experiment. This elk is in an OTC General season area. He looks to be a little short on the main beams but the fives are a nice size even though the fours look short. I didn't know about this Field Picture thread so I posted the pic on the trail cam thread, sorry if your running into it twice but I'm pretty excited.

That is a great Utah bull for an any bull unit, hopefully he will still be there for you! Thanks for sharing.

I am tore up right now after scouting this past weekend. I saw things that have left me unable to sleep at night and unable to focus during the day.

Wow, that is a nice bull.

I've seen a lot smaller ones online taken from limited entry units.

I'm not a good judge of size when it comes to elk. What do you guess the score of this one?

Good luck to you.

I'd pop him, no questions asked or doubts in my mind.

Well I'm having a hard time guessing because of the size of the 5's I'm having a hard time getting a guess on the 4's. however I will take a stab at it and would like to hear what others think. Main beams look to be in the mid 40's maybe 46" the 4's look to be 16" (but I could be guessing short because the 5's have some good size.) the 1's/2's look to be in the 15" area and short three's at around 10" I'd say he is 330ish (could be too high for the measures I'm guessing, could make me look stupid also.) I've been told in last part of antler growth there can be 6" put on a day so he could have got much bigger if that is true. Any idea if that is true?

I have been up in the mountains for 7 days and haven't been able to track him down. I also haven't seen another hunter remotely close to where I've been; however, that will change in the upcoming weeks as some guys will hit the tail end of the hunt and try and get get the animals at the first of the rut.
