I think you are right, HWD. It looks like a monster goat that should net well above the minimum.

Thanks Wild Country but I keep telling everybody this one isn't mine. It was another I guy there hunting that I met.

It beat mine all to hell in size !
Beautiful buck, good to know Cali is still good for something.
Hey boy's and girl's,
Mike called me today and he had his goat scored by an SCI scorer ,so no drying period or deductions. It scored 86 7/8.
Boone and Crocket 1 3/8 less. Will make Boone and Crocket being over 80 in. and all time over 82 in.. The two tied for second place Ca. all time scores are 87 4/8 and 4th is 86 something. I'm pretty sure those are B&C scores. I forgot to say that that buck was well known in the area. Hunter's have been trying to kill him for 3 yrs. prior. Mike said he saw 3 different 15 in. bucks there that had the same heart shaped horns. Most likely his off spring. Found out Mike and I will be deer hunting nieghbors in Sept.. He has an X9B tag and I have and X12. We are going to meat for a steak down in Bishop. He's packing in with his horses up Sawmill canyon. He said if I get something I need packed out to call. I said if it's 100 degrees I can't wait a couple hours or so ! They got an early snow storm in there last year right at end of the season Oct. 8 & 9th. I've never been that lucky in X9B,X9A or X10. Maybe X12 will be lucky for me...
Bishop still as wet as it used to be? I have very fond memories of that town. I won my first all around cowboy buckle there. A beautiful place. Congrats on the goat also. Hes an absolute stud!

Used to go to "Mule Days" all the time in Bishop at the fairgrounds and stay at a cabin up the road at Convict Lake. Always had fun. 30 degrees cooler at the lake ! I've got snowed on Memorial Weeked at Convict Lake. Don't know what time of the year you were there. Some others on the Forum live in and near Bishop. I know Sierra_Intruder lives there.
