Iíve been a member for years, love this group. Like a giant campfire- but comes with thousands of years of cormbined experience.

Iím not sure that what I do is considered hunting, at least for deer. I guess Iím more of a deer watcher than hunter. I watch them with a rifle, ALWAYS with kids...Iím not shooting them, unless a follow up is needed...still contently waiting on that ďbig old toppyĒ as my South Africa born deer hunting machine Methodist pastor would say. Would sure help if that ONE neighbor would quit shooting all of the 4yr olds. Along with his dad, brothers, cousins...whatever. Whatever makes you happy, I guess. Just frustrating to let them walk and later see pictures of them proudly adding ANOTHER one, EVERY year. For what purpose? I have no idea. Canít imagine that itís fufilling every single year and they have got to be short on wall space. Wait, no they arenít. Last years 4yr olds were euro mounts. This year or next they might have been booners. Just tragic to me but again- we all do this for our own reasons so Iíll keep watching I guess. Impossible to run an effective QDMA program with that ONE neighbor whoís whole family shoots them all during the rut. Or at least most of them.

Ok, thatís out.

Would some of you more experienced and knowledgeable take a minute and score this buck to the best of your ability? Itís for someone else and I havenít a clue. Can add more pictures if you need them.

Nice chocolate horns. No expertise at all here. 131 3/8ths. grin

Yes, I hear you about folks shooting 13 inch deer at 3 yrs old and they have 15 deer on the wall.

No expert but I suspect it scores higher than you think

I'm going to say the main frame is 135-140. Beams curl in and are longer than you'd think. Mass will help make up for tine length, especially on the outer measurements. Width doesn't account for much in B/C anyway, so that doesn't hurt. Add all the trash (8-12"), and I think you've got a deer pushing upper 140s maybe even 150. My 2 cents...
From the looks of his beams, he might have been a main frame 12 next year. And who knows what those extra stickers would have looked like on a 6.5yr old deer. frown
All that being said, I doubt I could have held back on a free range deer like that either.
