This is a high fenced buck that was released onto a property I work on in Irion County. He's got to be over 200". I'm not real good at judging big nontypicals like this. Maybe y'all have an idea. Spread looks to be about 22". I'm counting 21 points, maybe 22 or so depending on the length of some kickers. He's got a pretty nice drop tine near the left base. Red ear tags which are plainly visible, but I can't quite make out the numbers. Might have been some dust on the lense of my Nikon D4 digital SLR I bring to work with me for photo ops like this, which might explain some slight blur around the edges.

What do you think? Score? Age? Points?

From what I can see, looks like he has some mass. Thats about all I can see in that picture.

He has a nice butt. But that's about all I can make out from my iPhone.

I hope you wear your glasses when you drive, at least.

That pic is as clear as the water in west Texas.

See? This guy didn't have any problems seeing it. Of course, the close up pic helped, I'm sure.
