Let's try something a little different here. Below is a photo of a 4.5-5.5 (can't decide which) slick 8 from last year that looked to be in the low 140s, maybe a little bigger. The rain and conditions have improved slightly over the last 12 months. I think I caught a quick glimpse of this guy last Friday and we will be looking for him opening weekend. So what do you think he was last year, and how big of a jump will he make this year? I'll hopefully circle back with pics of him on the hoof this year or maybe even on the ground. In 3 years I've never seen him at a feeder or even gotten a trail cam pic of him, but he loves to travel through the draw he's crossing in the pic below. Same place I think he crossed last Friday morning. What do y'all think?

Not a ton of rain, but timely. I'd say better than average. Our quail population is looking better than it has in 4 years.

Well yeah, but you have seen a glimpse of him already...

Honestly what do you expect your typical 140 inch 4.5-5.5 YO clean 8 pt to do with a marginal year?

Depends on if he is a feed hound.

5% if not, 10 % if so.

Most deer take decent jumps at 6.5 with normal rain year

If you let me shoot him I will let you score him peep I would say he should be low to mid 150's if he is a clean typical.

This is what we're hoping for (the score not you shooting grin ). If the deer I saw last Friday is the same deer, he has put on some tine length and mass. I need a better look obviously, but I too think he should jump into the low 150s. I'd love to see the ranch produce a 150 inch 8. banana

Of course I wouldn't mind him putting on a pair of 10 inch G4s...

I think high 150's given the great condition he appeared to be in last year during drought. Extra mass from timely rains and just a little more tine length should have him pushing 160. Definitely not ready to head the other direction yet.
