Watched this 8 for several days S. of Hondo. he is to about to ears but not outside. Love his thinkness and extreme height, just having trouble in my head fitting the inches on an 8. Thinking 123-130 but I do not have much experience scoring. Am I off base?

I'd say 120ish. But he's one of those bucks that looks better than he scores. You said you like him, I'd take him.

WOW what a buck! 120-130 he is just awsome looking he will be a great shoulder mount with him in the seek position! I think he's outside the ears but your right not by much. Make a good shot and watch him go down!

X2

Unless he has crazy long beams he won't break 30, but
Being tall racked makes him look great and look awesome on the wall

Yea, The bases make it hard to put the binocs down. I just stare at them! I keep hoping he has a big brother that has an extra 2 points and is about 2" wider!

Then on the last weekend of season I'll be kicking myself for being so critical of that super heavy/tall 8.

Hey TexFire - You got a picture that shows more of his body.

How old is this deer??

My guess, looking at his back and face, he is 5 maybe 6 years old.

I do at the house. In fact, the pics are still on my zoom camera. I take pics with cameraphone of the display on the back of the zoom to text to other hunters and that is what I posted. A pic of my pic. Anyways, I judged him at 4.5-5.5. I'll look for the others.
