I was once told that if a w'beasts horns spanned to the outside spread of the ears it's a big bull.
If that's the trueth, then this one's a monster, no ?
Time to fess-up.
What's the story behind this pic.

He's going to be a big bull for sure still needs to go another year or two for his bosses to develop properly and the brown between his horns to become dark. Strange eyes though at first I thought it was photoshoped for fun or still think maybe it is.
Yes its a general rule of thumb to look at spread past the ears but it can be deceiving since the ears must be pointed exactly outwards and horizontal they seldom do stand like that mostly the ears are turned up like in photo and forward. But when a bull does have the ears correctly horisontal you are looking at spread around 26" this boy will make 30"Frederik Cocquyt, Outfitter and Professional Hunter

Frederik, your response highlights the value of an experienced and knowledgable P.H when assesing Trophies.
What I know about w'beast could be written on a cigarette paper and have space remaining.
My statement was a remark told to me by a young zim P.H, and an in passing comment.
Regardless of his current size I would hate to shorten the true potential of this animal by mistakenly ending his days prematurely.
All this still does little to explain the "look" of having just returned from a colonoscopy !

Yes let him spread is genes around a bit - 5 /10 years time we will have a herd of amazing horns and crazy eyes !
On a more serious note any fermented fallen fruit around where he is - seems to remind me of a horse I had growing up
