    QUOTE=Kevin W;59500]Great thread indeed!!! Being I am new at this is it possible for an antelope to have 3 of the 4 circumference measurements below the prong?[/QUOTE]

    It certainly is if the prongs are high enough so that the third measurement of the four works out right. This one I shot last year out there just barely made that third measurement right below the prong and because his mass was so good he hit 80", but then lost a couple inches after the drying period. He was right at 14" in length, which is not that great, but because his prongs were so high the third measurement at 7" was just as good as the first two. A little difference on that measurement at half his length would have cost as much as 4-6 inches if it was above the prong.

Tag cuts in some units have people moving to look at different units, I'm also a firm believer that the bill before the legislature to raise non-resident fees that was being debated at the time applications were due caused a lot of non-residents to want to put in and burn points before the prices went up. It didn't pass this time around, but I think you have a lot of people burning more points than necessary traditionally on units this fall because of that.
    Yep - exactly. I burned my NR points this year to try and pull a decent tag before the fees go up. I think a lot of people did the same.
