Thanks. By the way we scored him, any guesses?
Pretty accurate on B&C scores , usually within a couple of eighths. Everyone wants a 350 bull but would you pass on this one?

General season in Idaho, no way I pass. A tag I've waited years for, yeah I'd probably pass unless I was running out of time. 290-310?

My guess is about 300. As someone already mentioned it might be hard to pass up depending where you're hunting. If that's the first bull you see after week of hunting it might look like a monster.

292 2/8. He had a lot of potential, you can tell from the pedicles he was a young bull.

Amazing! I'm going to have to show this thread to some friends. That coloring looks perfect in the picture!

Liquid pine tar, bark and dirt. We opted for the natural route since he was such a neat bull. Takes a while but ends up looking like a naturally rubbed rack.
Do you have a favorite brand of pine tar that you like, or one that works the best.

I found my first dead head over the weekend, and when I showed my wife yesterday the first thing she asked was if you could recolor the antlers. I wasn't sure if it could be done and have a natural or realistic look to it, but you obviously proved it on that. I have a few sheds that are in similar condition I would like to try first, before I committed to a larger project.

Just liquid pine tar, very sparingly or a nice sappy branch .
The pine tar gives a kind of yellowish looking color at first but when you rub and branch or loose bark and dirt over it the right color will take over.
You can just rub a sappy branch with loose bark too on smaller antlers, just like the animals naturally do.
