Our lease rules state:

Trophy: 5.5 or older with at least 9 points

Management Buck: 5.5 8 point

Cull Buck: 4.5 with 7 points or fewer

I have never "managed" a deer herd with a group of hunters before so this is all new. Seems there isn't much difference in a management and cull buck?

One of the largest bodied bucks seen on the property. I'd take him as a trophy and be perfectly fine with it.

Trophy is definitely in the eye of the beholder but you have to separate yourself and your opinion from what the lease is capable of. Even though you think a 130 10 point is a trophy a true trophy in the opinion of the ranch owner or lease manager may be 150 10 point. Rules are rules but as long as you end up happy its worth it.

So what is a 5.5 YO 10 point that scores 106, short stuby tines and 15 inches of spread?

I think those standards/guidelines need some help. Also like you said management and cull may as well be one in the same.

Management, mature, maybe going down hill or just don't make the grade or standard set.
Cull, young, could be as young as 2.5 but shows no pontentialto make the minimum goals set for your heard.

You all must be really good at aging to be able to guess a deers age while alive.

In my world, there is no such thing as a "management buck". The deer either fits the program or he is a cull. The term "management hunts" came about so landowners could charge more for bigger culls.

You can't tell me that you can't look at your deer and tell the 1 and 2 yr olds from the 4+ yr old bucks. You have way too much experience with animals for me to believe that.

Yep. Younger deer that don't fit the mold are all in the same group, they need to go. I don't care what we call them, I prefer dead.
