I am not a guy that's really worried about what a deer scores. But my brother shows me this picture of a deer and I saw "nice 115 inch deer". He thinks that I am way low. Help me settle this. I will average everyone's guess and see who is closer. Him or I.

I wouldn't go over 125.

After reading my own post. It appears like I am worried about score. But that's not the case. I am more worried about my brother being right and me wrong :)

From: Nick Muche

I'd say 115" is about right, give or take a few inches. You win.

From: Rocky D

You are in my IMHO.

From: grossklw

125

114 for sure...…………..

From: Rocky D

Personally I may be wrong but I do not think that buck is close to 125.

From: Grey Ghost

Somewhere between 110-120". Definitely not P&Y.

I hope your brother lets him grow up.

112 is my guess

From: TrapperKayak

I figured around 115 - 120 by the looks.

From: midwest

120 tops and I hope your brother kills him and enjoys the venison.

From: Beav

115 or an inch or two better.

From: longbeard
30-Oct-19
I’m right there with you Beav...maybe 118”

From: Brotsky

Very promising 2.5 year old buck. You are dead on with the score. Short beams, short brows, no mass, and 7" tines. I've shot a lot of bucks like this one, he'll go in the low to mid teens. Next year he'll be in the low 30's and then he'll blow up! Keep him alive!

From: Copperhead

I say if it's a trophy to him then let him shoot. Can't eat the antlers anyway unless you grind them into powder. I've heard it helps in the lovemaking department but I'm not willing to give it a go.

IMHO 115 sounds right.

From: woodguy65

"He thinks that I am way low."

What was his guess?

From: KsRancher
30-Oct-19
125

From: Bake

Yup, 115ish is about right.

From: milnrick

Brotsky nailed it!

That's a very nice 2.5 year old buck that shows a lot of potential. I hope he makes your brother happy if he choses to fill his tag with it.

From: SBH

I’m with the crowd on this. 115”-120” no way he’s over 120”

As far as shooting him...that’s up to you guys! I hunt some areas with better deer but have some stands hung where holding out for a 125” deer means you will not be killing a deer! They don’t exist!

Have a good hunt!

This is the deer he is after. But he is wanting to wait till after our annual mule deer hunt. And try to get him if he comes up empty handed on the mulies.

Um ya.....let the first one walk:) Goodness me. Might be pretty picky on that mule deer hunt............ I think my ass would be in a tree!

If your brother likes the deer and it presents a shot, shoot him!

I think it's very difficult to tell with just one picture at times. Reminds me a lot of thie buck I arrowed a few years back. Any ideas on this one?

220”

Now your brother is sure to win the average!

126-128 on Roy’s

From: KsRancher

I will say 130 on Roy's

From: Rocky D

123 on Roy’s

From: Will

Ks, you win. I stink at ball parking... but Roys I'm going with 120, just because his question seems to be suggesting it's less than you think...

From: BOHNTR

The buck I posted was officially measured at 128 4/8” NET. I just thought that the original photo of the buck was pretty close to the one I killed.....of course I’m not a whitetail guy, but perhaps he’s better than 115 and closer to 123ish? Since I only have two whitetails and no tag right now, I’d hammer him! ??

Tough to say from one picture but I bet he's in the 115-120 range.
