    Your right, but if I only had one tag, I would guess the one in the rear of the pack. Junk is almost dragging the ground. May just be the angle which the photo was taken.:nailbiter:

    Depends on if you want mass (left) or length (middle). Either one will set you back, the house, wife and kids, not to mention the firearm used to shoot it. But would it not be a rush!!! I just hope to get my cat (leopard) hunt done. Ele if I win the lottery.

    Fantastic bulls!
    It does indeed look like parts of Tsavo East. Particularly north east of Voi.

    That was my first thought, but in a perfect world...

    Which one would weigh the most? They are all so different in tusk comformation, I think the either the first or last bull would be the biggest but which one? Other than huge, I wonder how big each of these guys is, weight wise? PH's what do you think? (other than shut up and shoot) ;)

    As far as biggest one....either the middle or last one. Either way you can't go wrong.
