The last few years I've heard 100-inch pronghorn rumors yet no one has produced one of these legendary beasts. The buck would have to dry (shrink) for 60 days to be officially scored and therefore need to green score more than 102-inches. That's BIG!
If the rumors are true then where are the bucks? I'd assume that either:
A) They're in units with few tags - no one scouts there, no one finds them. The person who does find one - the "rumor-starter" - does so on his way to camp after filling his tag. Drats!
B) The hunter doesn't know how to field judge, overestimates the bucks score.
C) The buck is far away, the hunter misjudges because heat waves blur the horns.
D) It's a lie.
E) B, C, and D
If this were multiple choice I'd pick "E" every time.
Does anyone have a 100-inch rumor they've heard? I'm always looking for one (a 100-incher, not a rumor.)
