Its hard based on the one pic with ears pinned back, he might not be super wide or anything given the ears pinned back. Figure minimum 17 for width, 22-23 for MB length, and 17 for mass each side (I think that may be generous). that gives sub 100 down, and without seeing all the tines I am guessing around 60+ up.

So he may push into the 160+" easily range if the width is there and the g2 on the left is equal to the one on the right. But he may go just below 160" if his width doesn't add up and the tines on the left are sub-right length.

Bottom line, if I saw him he would be targeted. Beaut of a deer and I wouldn't worry about the score. It will show up once you get him down up

Good luck

Experienced estimates could use better/more pics. Any ideas what he has on the left side? Is that a g2 angling off an is there another tine behind the bigun on left?
Great deer. Should be old enough.

Stud buck for sure and I would also say fully mature, but wont guess at score on that. Post the hole picture not pics of a computer screen, the more the better.

That looks like its an angled pic of a pic, which distorts the image. Can you upload the trail cam pic directly?

6-7, mid 160s. Lots of length and good mass.

Is he a 6x6, 6x5 or 6x4 with one NT point? He has good beam length and pretty good tine look but mass looks good not great. I would shoot him as a 7 yr old and not think twice about it. Wouldn't even look at his teeth...to late at that point. grin He looks to have 70" of tines that I can see but this as a 6x4 with one NT. Can't score what we can't see. I see 71 more or less up and 98-101 down from that one photo. More photos and angles will help a lot.

Need a couple more angles and the original pics are better for judging them but from this one I see at least a 6 year old for sure and if he is 6x6 with an extra on his left side I'd give him 70-73 up and right around 100 down if not a little better. He definitely has good beams and decent mass so I think he will hit that 100 down.

170-175

i think he was posing for the camera!
He has went nocturnal pretty much since he has been hard horned.

Hard to say really -- velvet can be a bit misleading too.

Older guy -- at least 6 years old from the body I think. Seeing enough there to merit some age on him.

Score wise, I'll venture low 170s but really need some good recent pics to see width and mass.
