We have a large herd of BB on our ranch now. I have 4 that are pretty frequent visitors to my area and feeder. Was curious what those with much more experience thought of the size of this one. The other one is close to the same length, but this one is a little bigger. Thanks!

His horn tips kind of fade into the scenery, but I will go with 16" - 17"

I'd say he's between 17"-18". But I'm no expert in anyone's book!

I think he's really close to that 18" mark. In that 17"-18" range.

Who cares. They are lost and found you. They are extremely good eating. Be blessed they are there and the fact that you have a chance of harvesting one without paying exhorbatant fees that these "exotic" ranches want.

Go get you some property, high fence it, put some animals in it, and see what you think about it being "exhorbatant fees".

I wondered who/how long it'd be before someone called him on that statement.

My bad. My intentions weren't to bash outfitters, my point was he is lucky to have them and not have pay anyone, no matter the cost, to harvest one.

My apologies.

That's awesome! Much respect sir.

And I think most everyone's right. 17-18". They are the prettiest animals out there. I highly recommend this mount.

Yes, the upside down Dracula mount, because I can't figure out wth I did wrong.

Mine will be home from the taxi soon. We have free range BB on my lease. They are off limits. But to me that is okay as I love seeing them. Since I have one it makes it easier.


I work hard, drink a little and hunt when I can.

They are on my place too. If those keep running all my deer off, one will die.

Or for Therancher...I will just have to buy an extra steak and a round of golf rofl
