Always wanting help with aging cause its a never ending learning process. Score is just fun. We killed a buck two years ago that appears to be related to this guy cause of similar antler configuration. The other deer just barely had G4s and had a small kicker and scored 150. [Linked Image]

I'll go 4.5 yrs old and may be bumping 140 gross. It takes a very big 8 pt to make 140, and a 150 8pt is a giant. My buddy killed a 152" main frame 8 a few yrs ago and it was enormous.

Take the head off and he looks a solid 4. Add the face and antlers and he pushes another year.
Score wise, he has good length. He will hold decent mass. I am at 17” inside and 20-21” mains. Mass will be around 11-12 each side. That’s 72-73 down. I get around 53 up, 13” g2, 9” g3, 5/4” g1.
That gives mid 20’s as an 8pt. Seems low. What am I doing wrong?

You need to recheck your math...17" + 40"-42" + 22"-24" is not 72-73"... more like 79" to 83". I think he has more like 25"-27" on mass and a bit longer beams...22"-23".

Appreciate you checking my math, not my strong suit anymore and I used to be really good at it. Too much garbage in my brain clogging up the calculator. Of course I could pull out my iPhone and use an actual calculator, but then I wouldn’t be the butt of jokes on the forum....as if that was the only reason clap

I love this buck you posted. He looks like a 9 almost 10 I got with a bow a few years ago. [Linked Image]
