    Snowy Range bull, any idea on what he would score?

    I don't know much about field judging moose but I think this bull would score pretty well. I saw him in 09 while elk hunting in the Snowies, does anyone have an idea what he would score? Not the best pic I know. If they scored his waddle he would be B&C for sure lol. If I had to guess I would say about 140 but that could be way off.

    I just checked out the IDFG records, and my buddies Idaho bull is 157 3/8. From what I can see this one looks much bigger.

    I was thinking 165-170. A "outstanding" bull.
    Can you handle the challenge.... hunt hard but safe!!

    My bull scored 168 and change, this one is bigger. I would put him in the high 170s, maybe a little bigger. Definitely a booner.

    Wow, I was way off! Man I wish I would have had a moose tag in my pocket that day. He stood there broadside and looked at me for at least 30 seconds at about 15 yards, that would have been awesome to get a B&C moose with my bow. Maybe someday.

    I have seen a lot of Wyoming moose. Been on over 8 or 9 kills on bulls. And harvested several my self. When it comes to score the spread is part of the total B&C score. Is it 46",49", 50" or 54" makes a difference. He has excellent back paddles and over 20 points! I can't see the front risers. But he is in the 170 for sure and if I could see his spread he could go in the 180's! But I think he is short in the front risers. Which will hurt the score. But as good as I have seen in 50 years living in moose country. Mike

    Definite shooter, but you really do need a frontal view to get close on moose score. Width, as well as depth of front forks make a huge difference in score.
