    How big?

    I'm having trouble judging this particular CO pronghorn. Sorry the pic is sideways, I can't seem to get it turn upright. Any guesses on score?

    Very short prongs, ok cutters, and decent mass. I suck at scoring antelope, but I wouldn't put him over 60.

    I believe the minimum to make B&C book is 80", but I could be wrong. This buck has good bottoms but weak tops so I would guess him around the mid 60s.

    I would guess a bit higher then the rest. But he looses so much in mass and length passed the prongs. Still not even close to B&C.

    80" for B&C Awards & 82" on Alltime Book for antelope. I also think that with what appears to be pretty good mass measurements that he's better than most think and may come close to 70", but a couple better pictures would help a lot.

    Here is the pic rotated. The buck has nice mass in the tips, high cutters, but the length is not there, the cutters are short and the mass is average. The buck is no where near 80". I'm thinking low 70's.
