C'mon August - I am ready to see how this guy finishes out this season. What did he score last season?

This is by far the widest and best 8 we had last year.

I got curious and looked up the Big 8 LF Contests at Los Cazadores and Los Cuernos. I am going back and forth on whether or not he would have been a contender. Either way, he sure is pretty - a clean 8 and double throat patch to boot.







He is showing a hint of a droptine coming off his right main (1/16" - maybe). If it doesn't get any bigger, what do you think he will score?

I concur with Bobo and would add that he is lacking a little point length too to really get him into the 150s..

cheers

That is what I keep seeing as well. I hope he is putting some serious girth on this summer; will know soon.

I got him with 35" of overall circumference, combined tine length at 44" total, beams at 40 combined - might be shorting him, width at 22 = low 140s. I don't think he has alot of asymmetry - I'd take P&Y as a consolation prize. grin He was frequenting my setup and my best friend's setup about a quarter mile away fairly regularly. Saw him at least every fourth or fifth sit last year; with my luck I will probably never see him this year.


We were both rooting for each other to drop him last year - if you read this, AgDog, I am trying to not be selfish but you better get your butt in the field this season. First come first served!

That, and I smoked his 10 point running buddy last season anyway:

Thanks. A very rough 141 as a 9 - 146 if he had all 10 points. He broke his right G1 flush with the MB the night before the rifle opener and I didn't drop him until a few days after New Years. He was just shy of being 18" wide - inside. Finally got him to the taxidermist two weeks ago.


Going through the drought of 2010-12 sucked, but the deer that made it through are impressive.

Love that double throat patch. He'll look good on the wall no matter what the score is.

It will be hard for that deer to get out of the 30s.
