I don't really stress too much about score....but this is a very interesting one for those who like to make estimates off of trail cam photos...especially interested in how people would score the mass.

Quick guess without any calculations would be 140s.


If you want some friendly advice, get a haircut and take a bath. You wouldn't get hassled so much.

Not the same deer. Stephens county....between Breckenridge and Eastland.

Yeah...mass is my real question. Our typical mature 10 pt. will be close to M1 - 5; M2 - 4; M3 - 3; M4 - 3...for 15 inches a side (30 total inches of mass). I really see minimum of 6 inches per M3 and M4...and maybe more because I have no experience with that type of palmation. But even with just 6 inches per M3 and M4 X 2 gives an extra 12 inches of mass.

Would love to hear from someone who has a similar palmated buck in hand to give some good insight.

Thanks to all who have posted!

I dont know if i woudl score that buck correctly or not, never scored one like it.

That said i feel like the 130's crowd is short changing that deer.

He is going to score better than most think at first glance.

51-53 up top
94-96 on frame

145-149

I gave him 36 on mass due to M3 & M4 palmation allowing 4.5" all the way across on all 8 measurements.


High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

I'd bet my bottom dollar he is well into the 40s!

my guess is 149. 40" of mass is what raises the score. I am pretty sure you will get 2-4 measurements that are at least 6 in circumference

To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

The length of the left main concerns me and may keep him in the 30s. Great mass. He is mature. shoot him!

The mass measurements may not be taken where yall think. A couple of those points COULD be considered nontypical and the measurement wouldnt be taken between them. Hes still cool though.

The only point I see that may be in questions is the G2 on the left side and I do think it will be scored as a G2 off the beam and not an extra point.

Even so, the deer will break 140 IMO.

Rough at 143 not sure on mass though and main beam length. Thinking 145-149 is in the ballpark .

Think he is a hell of a deer regardless of the score

His left beam and right brow are weak, but his right beam and left brow are pretty strong. I think he caries some pretty good tine length and appears to have good mass, but i personally do not know how that would be scored. I'd sure be proud to decorate him with my tag!

Not really concerned with typical vs. nontypical on a point....but as a purely academic discussion I think the G2 is in fact a G2.

There was never any question about whether I was going to shoot given the option :-)! Headed that way for a couple of days...terrible weather (hot)...and bad wind...but this is my first and maybe only chance to get on him while he is pretty regular (pre-rut).
