This is a deer I’ve been hunting for 2 years and rarely get a trail cam pic of him. I think I’ve gotten 3 total in 2 years, he’s never been seen during the day. Obviously he’s pretty old and it looks as though he lost a little mass since last year. What do you think he scores and age?

Mid-upper 130s or so, 7-8 or better on age. Good luck!

An impressive beast and one difficult to score with all that is going on . Score ain't gonna matter there. Plenty of age. Hope you can get him with what all he's got and with nothing broken off.

Very good mass, but beams appear short (could be the angle) - I will peg 144-146

I agree sir
Very, very mature buck and a trophy at any score.
I have him just a couple inches below you at 141-144.

This is the kind of buck that gets me pumped up because he is not just old, he must be smart according to the OP!!!

I am seeing about 52-54" on tines and only around 80-82" on MB, mass and spread with very short beams. He looks very old from that one pic...he has that "hot dog bun with legs" look.

Those extra pics show more NT tine length around the bases than the one original pic. I will up my guesses to 58-60" on tines and 85" on down frame. A lot will depend on what is mainbeam also with those last point(G4).

Hes appears plenty old and I think he will be close to 150. Those extras add up quick.

After the additional pics from the OP I think I overestimated his beams and they are going to be more in the 41-42 total but I definitely think he has more tine length than I originally game him which keeps him in the mid 40s IMO. May get to upper 40s to near 150 if the beams are 44+ and mass is a little better than the 30" I figured in.

I don't care if he scores 140 or 150, hell of a great mature buck and I hope the OP sends us some dirt nap pics (DNPs) soon!!
