Roosevelts are larger bodied but smaller antlered than their rocky mountain cousins.
Very cool and thanks for the info. I thought they were smaller in the body too. (y)

Yes there can be some huge bulls but a look in the B&C and P&Y you will see that their minimum score for the book is significantly lower.

I'm just saying there are some Big Antlered Roosevelts but general rule is Rocky mtn Bulls have larger Antlers

I hope your hunting season has started off well. I am coming to Namibia for the 7th time in late April of 2022. I am bringing two friends who have never hunted outside of the USA. I have several questions, but before I write them all, I will wait to see if you receive this. Please give a shout................................best regards.........................Bill...............Idaho, USA

Does anyone know where to buy a chamber reamer to convert .458 win to .458 Lott? I hear it is very easy to do—?
