I darted him and measured his right horn. I guessed wrong. What do you think he was?

TexasKC who has never seen one before is better than me. I thought he was around 28". He actually was 30.5". The curve will fool you. I should have measured him before I sold him. Screwed myself out of a few bucks. Oh well. Such is life.

Yes Sir curve got me Don, I was figuring the ears at about 5 inches and went from there. Great Ibex my friend. I always like to make the advantage to the customer which brings more business your way.

I can assure you it was just a WAG. That is a beautiful animal.

I hate guessing any spiral or curved horned animals. I would have guess 32" though.

I also always give the advantage to the customer. Repeat business is the best kind. Then comes word of mouth from an existing customer. You try to screw anyone on a business deal and it will come back to haunt you. You may not realize it but it will. And sometimes the shoe is on the other foot. I have had a few hunters for WT that I don't want back for various reasons. If I hear they are trying to hunt with an outfitter and I find out I will get in touch with that outfitter and let them know.

If the first one was 30.5" what is this one? I have not measured him so I need some expert opinion.

First one looks heavier, and this one looks longer. Obviously, i'm no expert given that I guessed 37 on the first one. Really do think this one will push mid-30's.
