NWTx once again. No protein. Normal dressed weights about 140 150. I killed him Nov 12 and he dressed less than that. Cam dates are wrong and iirc most pics were Sept Oct with rut last two weeks Nov. We were just coming out of the drought years. One of my other threads guys were debating spreads in the 22 to 26 range so I thought this would be a good one to look at. Besides age and score please estimate spread(inside.)

I took this pic at 175 yards after I had stalked him 1000 yards and right before I sat down with shooting sticks and shot him.

I can tell you this. This deer and the other are not even in the same league when it comes to spread. Maybe I am missing something but there is no comparison IMO. Awesome buck no matter what his spread is - he is an awesome trophy for any part of Texas -

Hud, how about age and score??
Speaking of wide, one of my best friends that's hunted this lease with me a long time and is my right hand man used to hunt STx a lot a few years ago. He killed a buck 7" wider than this buck and it had matching 3" double drops. He was actually kinda ugly and didn't score a whole lot more than this guy but boy was he wide.

Hes lighter weight body than Okla but I don't know about 70 #s. He mentioned the weight and the small ears as a comparison to the width on the other deer.

Probably closer to 50lbs, I added more because you said coming out of drought years.

It’s a shame those long genetics didn’t translate as much from a width to a height aspect, but dang I would love one that wide.

My guesses, since I don’t think the mass carries well on those long beams...

26” wide
50 up
I am at 103.5 down

I would argue he is 4.5, but in a drought year he may not be showing his age well so could waffle on the age +\- 1 year.

Guys, don't let my drought comment throw you off. The drought was pretty much 10 and 11 and this was 12 and we were ok. Just for what that's worth.

This is what I was going to go with as I have a 20"+ buck and this one is wider and more points.

Threelranch, that buck is nice, but I can see a couple more inches on free ranges. Just looking at the rifle stock. It appears the whole stock would fit inside his where yours would be covering the inside, it appears.

Yes pics can be deceiving, but assuming a 13inch ear spread and 4” ears, his buck has an extra ear plus a little on the right and at least an extra two on the left. I estimated 5 inches outside the ear on the right and an extra 8 on the left...13+13 = 26. I wouldn’t be surprised if I was short.

Threelranch buck looks like this one we killed this year. I won’t give stats cause I may post him as an age score later.

When the tines splay out to side like that they look even wider/bigger but no credit on score.

I say 4.5 23" wide Back still straight, brisket barely protruding, little belly sag and normal rump.

First pic I am copying he has a body that could be taken for 3.5, as a matter of fact I bet if you did not show the antlers that would be most people guess. The next one his face looks 5.5 Beautiful buck up
