130" 8 point
Just trying to figure out how to post pictures. And hopefully show off my 2004 deer.
I gotta say that guy looks larger than 130...Congrats!
It worked. I agree with Steve, that looks like mid-140's, maybe high 140's.
That is a pretty nice buck. I tend to agree with Genesis.
That's why pics are so deceiving. The buck is missing width on its spread.
Here is a picture of my buck last year that is mid-130's.
Sage Buffalo is correct the spread is only 12&6/8". He only had 1" deduction. I am really proud of the deer because it was my first wall hanger. In fact the four point in the left of the pic has a 15" inside spread.
sorry, forgot to rotate the pic.
Wow, amazing what a different camera angle will do. Very nice buck!
That buck still looks over 130!
You can get alot of score on a 12-14" spread
I always said its easier to score em once they are in your truck!!!! nice trophy for sure.
Width is only one measurement.I have seen several deer over 200 inches with under a 17 inch inside spread.
Beautiful deer, makes the wait for next season that much harder!
Nice buck!Great job. I was fooled too. I started a post on wisconsin forums. Called "Let's have some fun" had 37 posts to it. Average guess on my buck was 138. Actual was 129 7/8.
beautifull buck I would be proud as a new pappa even if i had no idea what he scored congrats!
I agree with the others. To be honest, scoring deer is a good way to gauge size but it's virtually meaningless.
For example, the buck in my picture had been seen all summer on our game cams.
I hunted him all during archery and got close on a couple of occasions but it never worked out. I am talking 12+ hour sits because he was coming out at random times. I was obsessed. I had it bad.
Well, I picked up my Muzzelloader and wouldn't you know it he came into bow range and I shot him. I actually missed and then he came back out 2 minutes later with his buddy who told him the coast was clear. Too funny. It's on video and I can't for the life of me understand how he didn't hear me reloading at 40 yards!!!
I was so stoked to have him o the ground because I have so many pictures of him. He was just a stud of a buck. He looked like a thoroughbred out there.
I will disagree with other above. It's hard for a buck to score really high with a 12-13 inch spread. My buck has 12 inch G2's and G3s. Had he had a 17 inch spread he would have been mid-140s and 22" spread mid-150s.
Nice buck for sure...does look bigger than 130....If he is 130 with a 12" spread then he woulda only been 135 with a 17" spread....As long as all other measurement remain the same. Congrats on a neat deer
Nice whitetail, but a creepy looking pronghorn mount.
A friend of mine shot 15 point buck that was a 7x8 and had 14" inside spread and he grossed 181". His main beams curled up and were as tall as his G4's. I agree with Genesis. I agree with Foodplot also for a change. Nice buck man, he looks bigger than 130
