I was after this guy 2021 season and was looking forward to seeing him in 2022. I never got any pics of him until 1/2/23. I had pics of him January of 2022 so I knew he made it through the 21 season. I figured something must have happened since I never saw him in 2022.

Age/ score thoughts?

First 4 pics are recent pics of him. The last 3 are from 2021

Looks 4.5 to me but hard to tell after rut and weather conditions if they were bad in your area . But would say the low 140s. If weather is good this year could easily go over 150 next season just needs more mass. Still very nice buck .

Nice buck but really is down due to rut and foods available.

From those pics I would say a really rutted down 5 yr old this year and 140-142 on score. He is at the right age to make a really good jump this year. He has the frame just needs tine length.

4-5 year old low to mid 140s. He has good g2 and g3 tines, lacking in mass all the way. Should be a 150” this coming season provided he puts on mass. Beam length looks nice and the spread may grow an inch.

This is a very nice buck and the right age to make a great jump if we get the rains starting right now until summer. The 40-30-20-10 a verage comes into play. His genetics will never let him gain enough mass alone to make 150. What he does have a chance to gain are 2 things that will get him there....tine length and spread. On average, 40% of a B&C score is tine length, 30% is beam length, 20% mass and 10% spread.ive nice bucks blow up by adding tine length alone..adding nontypical points on mature bucks can be normal in a wet year. Two years of history on this buck is really nice to have...this 3rd yr will be interesting.

He has more length in those G2 and G3s than I was initially giving him, I see a 142-145 buck that could/should get to 150"+ this next season given good range conditions. Should be a stud 150+, 6yo this next season.

That buck is south of 150" but north of the 142" typical 10 I am looking at as I type this. If he gets the 'right' type of groceries this off season AND range conditions improve, I bet he could add 0.2" on each of his 8 verticals gets him to upper 140s, tack on another quarter inch of circumference, spread and beam length here and there and he crests the 150 mark.

Nice buck regardless of score. Good luck chasing him next season!


...and my condolences on the hefty protein feed bill you are about to incur as you help get him there. grin

Buck has his Outlook Calendar reminder set for first Monday after the first Sunday in January (none MLD property) reminding him that it's Okay to take a morning and evening sunset stroll now.
