I love this Big 8... Any guesses on score? I can't get him to 140 but I am a pretty conservative "field scorer"...but he's close. He's a heavy son of a gun and wide... and he's got some MAIN BEAMS for sure...

Awesome buck. 1st pic really shows off his main beams unlike the 2nd. Not sure how wide he is, but I think he breaks 140 with ease.

Heck of a deer and heck of an 8, mature, but I think he is closer to 130 than 140, good luck

146. Helluva 8 point and outstanding trophy. I love big eights and would be thrilled with him!

128-130, maybe a little more. For reference, this big 8 went 144

My first thought about his beams was they were going to hurt him. How wide do you think he is?

I had him at 137... but gave him 24" main beams and that might be bit much...

Beams - 24x24 - 48
Mass - 30
G2 - 10x10 - 20
G3 - 6x6 - 12
G1 - 4x4 - 8
Spread - 19

I'd guess 133. He's a beautiful deer. I hope he presents you with a shot soon. Good luck.

Stud deer. I agree, upper 30's. Wouldn't care, great mature buck to take. Good luck getting him.
