My 1st post in this great forum. Been lurking and absorbing info for most of this season. I've only been hunting for 3 years, so this site has been a great help to me this year, many thanks folks!

My boss dropped this buck earlier in the year. We bumped into some other hunters the other day, boss showed him this pic, and fellow said, "nice buck, probably around 130"....we drove off, boss says that dude is off. Told boss I knew a place where I could get him some "other" opinions, so, here I am, what say you? Thanks, Kel

He's a shorter timed, wide angled dude with decent mass. Looks low to mid 130s to me...

I feel like those beams are going to score more because they come so far back in. Like it was said above, mass is decent. I'm figuring upper 120's. Buck has a lot of cool character.

Great buck, I'd kill him.

What is inside spread?

Photograph perspective does a lot in making a buck look bigger than he actually is. Do you have an inside spread measurement? That will help give us a reference point.

Photo makes it look huge, but I'd tell my "boss" upper 130's when it's lower 130's.

I would like to know what the boss thought it would score. Watching the video and stretching the tape I still think he's under 140. Beautiful buck, if the age was right I'd have shot him.

I am pretty close to these numbers on this buck. I think he will go a little higher as I had the mass and beams stretched a little farther...so I would guess 138 or so. Very nice buck

I would tell you and the boss (and anyone for that matter) not to get wrapped up in the score. I have seen a 130" deer that looked much better than a 144" and seen 155" deer that looked better than a 168" and so on. Score gives you an idea of the frame and overall, but not necessarily the class of deer or the appeal. I have also seen people that were really excited about a deer become disappointed after the tape was put on it.

I score all my deer and like to know the score of other deer, but I don't put much stock in the number itself.

Great looking buck up

very true ... the actual number can really deflate some people's ego when minutes earlier they were excited and proud of their harvest ...

I agree 100% and would score him about 138 as well, for the long main beams......

If I remember correctly, I thought he said more like 140? Don't think its that big of deal to him, it is a nice regardless. We have had a pretty good year up to now. Here is my buck from earlier. We have both seen several even nicer bucks, but since we already had one, next one had to very..very good. Seen several that were close, but the old, "he'll be awesome next year"...Kel [Linked Image]

Agree with the others that the score shouldn't determine if your happy with him or not. I think he is a heck of a good looking buck.


I also think at 130 he is being short changed some. He has decent mass and those hooked beams and curved tines hide inches. I think he is really close to 140.

Also scoring deer is very very easy, google it and have a soft/flexible tape and you can get a rough score very quickly.

For reference, I shot this one in 2012, state biologist scored it, all official like. 140-1/8" as I recall. I have the sheet at home. Pic's do make deer look huge. [Linked Image]

You guys are making this wayyyy too difficult... OP, if it's the boss's deer, it's easy 170. If it's your's, probably 140. Nice deer either way.
