Don't think he will bust 130. Nice buck lots of character. What are you calling west Texas?

I think he is in the low 130's. Lot of tine length gets him over 130. His 2's and 3's have a lot of arc inward and bow forward in them.

That's where I'm at. I picked up a skull one year at Fort Campbell that had an almost identical frame and went 136.

Depends on body size for me. If that is a 200# deer he's gonna score upper 140's. Easy.

The last 3 mature (5 1/2+) deer that I've taken off this lease have averaged 190 lbs. All of them have had a frame score between 89-92". This one has me a little puzzled because the others were all wide framed deer. I'm not used to the narrower frame.

I have him only at 85" on my score guess on his frame. If he is at 89 then he is upper 130's easy or maybe low 140's .

128-130 on his main frame. Might gain an inch for the one longer kicker.


Every potential trophy buck needs "another year";)

I've got him in the mid-30's, he has better tine length than it initially appears and he gains a couple inches over average brow-tines. If the mass turns out like I would expect I see a deer close to 135". Lots of character, too, nice buck.

With kickers? I think he will push 140.

Lots of cool character!!

I'll bet anybody $100 that he's 145" or better gross. Put him on the ground and make me some $!

I'm dang sure going to try! They may not show in these pics, but he has at least 4" of extras. He may not make it to 145, but I really think he'll go 142-143. Hopefully we get to ground check him and hopefully you can make some money!!!

This deer went 143" legit. Yours is at least 2 inches better based on brows and kickers.

Thanks for those pics! That's pretty crazy how similar their racks are. All this is in fun. I'm not a score fanatic, 140" is just a cool personal benchmark. The last 3 bucks I've killed are 137,134,133. He may not make it, but I'm slingin an arrow, I promise you!!!

It was my score and I'm very conservative. It WAS a green score I'll admit, but it was accurate or on the shy side.

I'm with the higher guesses. The way the tines kick forward will hide some length.

I would take that bet, but it would depend on who measured him grin
