I will say 308
I don't think so. It is a fine bull, but here is what I get:
Tines: 63 X 2 = 126
Mass: 26 x 2 = 52
MB : 42 X 2 = 84
Total = 292
I will say 308
I'm coming up with 324".
I'm just using the 200 system. With only one picture, it is tough for me to get accurate lengths so I gave this bull 16" for G1, G2, and G3. I gave the G4s 18" and the G5 10". Then instead of doing all the guessimations with one picture, I am just giving this bull 50" main beams, 50" width, and 50" of spread.
Looking at the picture again, the main beams, width, and spread definitely don't add up to 200", but it is normally a quick method while in the field to give you a decent idea looking through the spotter.
Well BB, I have taken some time now to give a better guess than the 200 system:
G1: L 14", R 14"
G2: L 14", R 14"
G3: L 13", R 11"
G4: L 16", R 14"
G5: L 10", R 8"
Tine Length: 128" (these numbers were figured using the spur of the antler to the tip of the nose being 16" as a reference.
For the mass length I just am not good enough to probably be any kind of close off this picture, so I am leaving that number at 50"
I am thinking the inside spread is a tough angle, but at least outside the ears so I will say 40"
So I guess "my take some time" guess is 296".
Now I am really interested in the final score to see which one of my scores is better, quick and easy or this last one that took 20 minutes.
20 minutes.......holy hell that's long....
Now I'm just rambling, think I will go shoot some ground squirrels.

Yeah, it is tough to work with the picture.
I am confident though that those short mainbeams are nowhere near 50 and same for the IS, which of course is the only spread that counts in the score.
I am sticking with my guess as pretty close. I am interested to find out who scored it.
It is fun to guess.
Here's my guesstimated measurements, although I worked till midnight last night and came back in at 7 so I'm sleep deprived.
Tines: 76 X 2 = 152
H1: 7.5 Average
Mass: 30 x 2 = 60
MB : 48 X 2 = 96
Total = 344
Those beams are short looking to me
