bc normally means "Boone and Crockett" (sometimes you'll see py or Pope and Young if it is archery hunting) and the number is normally a representation of total inches (they take measurements from many different spots on the antlers). Anything over about 300 'bc' is a very nice bull and generally anything over 350 is the type of animal that you may see on the cover of a hunting magazine.
Now you can speak with authority to hunters should the need arise.
Haha, you aren't really speaking my language. Not a hunter and have no clue what a BC is as it relates to hunting.
Yeah that was an elk, it scored about 280 bc. I was pretty happy with it but there were several bulls running in that herd that scored well over 350 and the Oregon State record bull was killed out of that herd as well, he scored 383.
No problem man! Never been more west than Utah, but maybe we'll run into each other at NCAA's sometime!
That's one heck of an Elk!!(At least I think that's what it is)
Thanks in advance for the updates, I promise you won't bother me with too many. If you're ever in the Northwest I'll buy you a beer or two.
