Rough Estimating Elk Antler Size SCI
(Sheridan, AR USA)
I have booked my first elk hunt out west. My package includes up to 250 inches before the bonus prices increase. Can someone tell me how to estimate the antler size of an elk or at least a 250 inch elk? I've deer hunted for years and 150 inch B&C is a very good deer where I live and I know it's another 100 inches... *)
I just need a rule of thumb so I can visualize/estimate the size.
I will be with a guide but I don't want to be the guy who doesn't know and certainly don't want to shoot anything less than a 250 inch. But also don't want to have to live on the porch if I shoot one that will have me and the wife taking on a another job to pay for.
Thanks for any info.
