Does anyone have proof of a 40" or over axis being taken or darted and measured? By proof I mean official score card or picture/video evidence of the measuring.

If you stay on a forum long enough you get to see the same thing brought up 100s of times...sometimes by the same person.


There was one guy that posted this question like 20 times...never did see the pic.

Shoot, the guys I know see them 48" tall with 14 points all of the time. Of course they exaggerate a bit.

I doubt it's 40" but this one is impressive.

#8 in the world, 37".




Rowland-Ward has an entry of 44" but it dates to 1877 so who knows.

I'm not shopping for a hunt. Just would like to see proof of a 40" axis. Many claims to have one but I haven't seen a tape on a 40 incher.

This fella was in Menard county, low fence, and I chased him all season. Never could get an arrow into him and put a tape on him.

I just knew this one would be pushing 40" but he taped just north of 36.5".

Out of the game, he's only 381/2, never thought Id say only 381/2, but he's not forty.

This one went up on one of the Facebook hunting groups a while back. If I recall they said it taped out at 40" but I dont recall any pics to prove it. I have my doubts.

I remember seeing that one. That's a funky angle.

#8 in the world in R.O.E, SCI, bow, gun, overall length, etc?
