Super Raffle Bull

Recommended Posts

A 360 bull would only be in one awards book for the 3-year period that it was entered. If you got a 375 bull it would be in the awards book also, but then it would be automatically entered in to the next all-time book which is a different book although both are published by Boone and crockett. The all-time book has trophies going all the way back to the 1930s. The all-time book gets bigger every time it's published.

Had Waldo in camp last year with Tine, I'm sorry this bull looks huge to me, glad I don't lose lots of sleep over he's not big enough, cant eat the horns,  but I also understand mines bigger then yours.

This is still a great bull. Remember some people even in Arizona will never kill a bull this big. I personally would rather kill a hard horned bull than velvet but with a year long tag and waiting to last minute i would kill in velvet.

So if each tine was 1.5 inches longer it would only have to make up 2 more inches in all of the other measures to include width to add 20 more inches to make this a 380 bull if it was dead on the money at 360.... I think it's a very good looking velvet bull which many of us will never get to shoot.

That bull is bigger than anything I’ve killed, I may have blown an opp. or two on  one it’s equal or better , but that’s pure speculation as they never hit the ground.  If that little guys happy with it, it’s all good!   I hunt for the the pleasure and the meat, antlers are a by product.    There is a reason I’ll not post pics  of hunts.  People are too judgey behind keyboards. His tag, his hunt.

Who is hating on this bull? For the record I think it is a great bull and would be proud of it as well. I just posted it because I thought people would want to see it as it is one of the first bulls I have seen taken this season. I always enjoy seeing success stories and wish everybody the best of luck this year.

I don't think anyone was hating on it. It is just that anytime anyone comments or asks questions about a bull or buck antlers, the "you can't eat the horns" guys come out of the woodwork to let you know what an evolved (dare I say "woke") hunter they are. Congrats to the hunter, I am sure he is happy with this bull. He should be if it met his goals for the hunt.

If I drew the once in 10,000+ hunter's lifetime statewide year long raffle tag (since I won't be buying an auction tag anytime soon), I'd be taking it up to the last day holding out for a 400"+ bull, especially if I had hired one of the big outfitters in the state. For the amount of money he likely spent, he could have bought a whole lot of beef. So I don't buy the "can't eat the antlers" argument in these (or most any) situation.

Regardless, it doesn't mean the rest of us can't or shouldn't be able to discuss it. I think the size of this bull makes for interesting conversation about the current droughted state of our wildlife, raffle and auctions tags, etc.
