Just dropped off my first whitetail kill in 6 years and he was a stud. Can anyone tell me a website to post pics for a guesstimate score? Taxi wouldn’t even guess let alone measure. I am guessing high 170’s to 180’s

An absolute toad!
Congrats

Hard to tell from just that one angle but it I'll stab it:

99-102 down
88-92 up

187-194

Sorry for the extremely large gap but I just can't guess them very good with just a front view like that. Hell, I could be off on his frame 10" alone!


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

great buck! Congrats!

It is really not difficult to get a rough score.

Go to Boone and Crockett website and it will show which measurements to take - basically it is:

1. each beam length (measure on the outside of the beam from base to tip), 2. each tine and brow tine length (also on the outside of the tine), 3. first four mass measurements on each side (the smallest diameter) , 4. and the inside spread at the widest point.

Will not be exact or official but will give you a good idea

Should have had taxi cut antlers off for you and then take it to an official scorer after drying period exception for big game awards there is no drying period needed

Lots of mass. Should be a high 170's deer. Why guess? Just call a Texas Big Game Awards scorer and meet him at your taxi. Get it scored and then enter it for your region. Here is a list of scorers -

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

I got over 190 as well, but it's hard to see it all from one pic. Congratulations, OP!

Do they have scorers that will come to your house and score and explain how they got the measurements?

It just depends on the individual. Normally I would think that most are too busy but some will. Its just a volunteer position(TBGA) so they can do or not do what they want. Some taxidermists will be official scorers and they would likely spend more time with you in an attempt to get/keep your business. Also, I assume there are videos out there for just about anything.

They are volunteers so most will expect you to come to them.

I NEVER leave my horns with a taxidermist. Way too many folks never see their deer again. Taxi goes out of business and disappears you may never see your deer again
