155 10pt. The bigger the better. I understand what youre getting at and if the numbers were a little close I would opt for the 8 but not with15" difference.
Thank you for starting a worthy thread thats not political or non deer related..... Yall got 4" or so out there? Miss the hail? 50 mph wind?

Depends on the 10pts 4ths, if they are short, then the 10 has a bigger overall frame, but if they are 7” long usually the 8 pt will have a better frame

But in general frame impressives me more then tine number

If all measurments are equal between the two except for the G4's on the 10 then I take the 10 every time! That would equate to 7.5" G4's and thats impressive. Now if that 140" 8 is really a main frame 7 sporting a 5" drop tine for his 8th point then the 8 point has to die.

I don't disagree with you, but if that were to hold true then the G3s would be shorter than the G4s. The more likely case is 100 on the bottom which leaves you 55 up top (pretty reasonable). A decent breakdown would be:

G1s = 8
G2s = 20
G3s = 17
G4s = 10


I'll take the consultant answer and say it depends. I'd want age and some history of growth

140" eight is impressive but i'm still looking for a mainframe 10. I have a mainframe 9 with a kicker so i'd go with 155" typical 10.

It would have to be a game time decision for me. But I'd be proud of either deer on my wall and or freezer. elmer food

G1-G3 being same it’s actually going to be less then 7.5

4th measurement typically is higher because G4 moves it backup and closer to M3. But probably only talking 1/2 in any way

^^^^^^^^^^^^This^^^^^^^^^^^^

I agree but will always love big 8s.
In the end, it is the one that is the most impressive and that is almost always going to be the buck with the bigger frame.


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

I'd prefer the 10, but wouldn't pass on the 8.

I’ve taken both so I’d pass on them waiting for something bigger.

Depends on age for me. If the 10 is 3-4 years old and the 8 is 5+, the 8 is probably getting their ticket punched. More to it than points and score for me. I'll spend my tag on a 6 year old 6 point before burning a superior genetic deer that still has potential.

I would shoot whichever one looked bigger standing on the hoof. I like big framed deer and never been much of score guy myself. If the 8 had a wide tall I’d shoot him any day over the 10 if he was narrowed with long times and a lot of mass

I like big 8s, and if they are both mature FME 140 pt 8s are rare so I would shoot the 8......

155" Ten would be nice in Texas

I like big 8's and a 150" eight would get me excited....a 140" eight is a nice deer but I would pass, unless it was with a bow


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.
