    Hard to really tell but the top one and the one with his ass to the camera look pretty good.
    Should go over 50" in length alone when in hard antler.

    They should be all stripped by the end of October yeah?

    When does the bow season start? Before rifle normally no?

    Correct mate...The bow boys,get the first crack at everything,they start around August,Rifle,deer 1st 2nd weeks of October,Elk,1st 3 weeks of Nov.....If the kill # is low they will extend the season.Things have changed,they stopped the hunting of cougars by dogs so there population has increased dramatcally,and the deer stocks in some areas going down,the wolf packs are spreading west from Montana/Idaho,never used to hear them,last year was the first time I heard their howl this far west,Alaska yes,but not in Oregon....there is talk of reintroducing the dog/cougar hunt,and a lottery for the wolf.........these photos were taken where we hunt....you know how that goes,here one day,gone the next......look at the numbers on the screen,the time,temp etc......they are all in good shape...that's before the big fires we've had,and those fires are really pushing the stock around to the point,that they have cancelled some hunts in certain areas,

    Yeah that one with the ass facing is nice. Looks to be the only real mature one there though as all the others are very short in the brow tines.

    At least over there they make an effort on herd management.
    If Doc had half a brain and was not filled with deluded academics that never set foot in the back country they could learn a lot from the yanks parks and wildlife system.

    They could actually generate money for the country instead of spending so much of our tax dollars and imo, wasting a lot of it now.

    From all accounts mate,they are a very smart animal,without dogs,anyone who has hunted them will tell you you have 2 shows of getting one,....no show and shit show......and luck.....

    Personally I'm not sure I'd take one if I had the opportunity,I think they are a very majestic animal....l have mates,who say the meat is just fine,if that's the case,take the deer and elk.They play an integral part in the food chain,I rather just watch and enjoy the view.

    I am the same. Never had the need or want to shoot anything other than edible quadrupeds or rodents. Possums are the exception but I have eaten plenty of them.

    Could never shoot a dog, big cat and especially bears unless to save a life.
