Score Me
Score Me
I'm terrible at scoring and frankly I shoot any buck that gets me excited, but this guy has me really excited! I have another super wide 10 and either would be my best ever off my family farm. Sorry for the poor picture as I had to zoom in to get him. I'll post up other shots too.

His brows bump his score. I'll say 130-135.

That is a 150's class deer by the time the growing is over . Look at the bases ( 5") and flattened main beams which will add those extra inches to your score. If he is not on the way down then he is about 4 1/2 years old . Brows are great and very small deductions (less than an inch total deduction) Perfect typical . Shoot him asap .

He's gonna be close to 150 by the time you harvest him. Maybe a hair under.

136-142" .... nice brows, not super wide ... I'd kill 'em

From: Bake

Man, I'm not getting what you guys are. . . . 15 inches inside, no tines longer than an ear. I'd guess not a single tine over 7-8 inches long. Short-beamed and his circumferences aren't bigger around than his eyes, so no circumference measurements over 4 1/2 inches.

My guess is 131 on the dot.

Nice looking deer for sure!

He's a no doubt shooter for me if I am so lucky to be in the right place at the right time. Pretty excited about him.

From: Nick Muche

Mid 120s. Nowhere near 150 as mentioned above.

have fun and good luck!

48" worth of tines, 44" of beams, 30" of mass, and 16" of spread. 138"

I agree with JTV. Nice buck though and most of us would be happy with him. Good luck and show us a pic of what he looks like dead.

Good luck with him! I know what it's like to be excited about a deer on cam and dreaming about it all the time. I get worthless about every November. . . .

Nice deer - just needs more height.

From: Crusader dad

Based on my limited knowledge of aging deer on the hoof I'm going to say mature 4.5 years old. Three more years and he could be a true giant. With that being said, I'd shoot him if he walked in front of me on opening day and be very happy.

I'm digging through some old game pics but my friend reminded me of a good young buck that "disappeared" in 2015 that had some tall brows. I'll post a pick of him then if I can find one. I actually missed that buck the opening day and I think this may be the same buck. I never saw him again that season. He was hitting our alfalfa hard that year and left just as quick.

Here's one I got off the other card.

Well found a picture. Its possible that its the same buck, if not similar genes. This buck had odd brows back then. Found a side shot of both of them.

I'm high no doubt. By about 10". Sorry.

From: longbeard

Bake I think you are off by an 1" or 1 1/2" on the inside spread so I'll guess 132"

From: t-roy

A touch over 140".....or a touch under it.
