    Please choose from the options listed above. I’d really like it if you could post a reply and explain why you picked what you picked.

    It’s hard to really tell from a photo but I based my vote on deer I have killed that looked to be about that size.

    It will have good mass measurements good G2s and 3s I say in the mid 140’s kinda hard to judge the spread but I gunna guess at least 18″ wide. He’s shooter in my book.

    I chose 137 – 142 or 3 becuase from what i can see in the picture he has mice mass and about 16 – 18 in of spread but not so much on tine length, but all in all I would shoot that without second thoughts, good luck hunting him

    I think the picture is a little deceptive. I think he will be 130ish or less.

    Low 130’s, maybe even high 120’s.

    I voted 130-136. He has good main beams, decent mass and while his tines in general aren’t long by any means he does have a bunch of them and they’ll all add up. Factor in what I would guess to be at least a 17″ spread and I think 130-136″ is spot on [=}=]

    i voted high 130’s low 140’s- as stated above- good mass, good beams, 7″-8″ g2’s and g-3’s. spread doesn’t account for much in scoring compared to tine lengths. very nice deer.

    Thanks folks- really appreciate the comments & rationale behind your scores. I have him at ~135-138 once the velvet is off.

    Anyone else care to chime in?

    He has only slightly better than average mass at a little over 5″ and short tine lengths for every measurement. Longest tines barely even exceed the length of his 7″ ear. I believe most here have easily over-estimated his score by not looking at this relationship between known measurements used to field judge, details like the length of the eye to nose, length of the ear and you can even compare to the diameter of the average eye measurment to determine mass. I don’t see that buck breaking 130’s. He may look like a shooter in another season or two, providing he can get the proper nutrition.

    I’m with cornfed on that one. I always use known measurements when speculating a bucks score. I usually compare with nose to tear duct cause its easiest to veiw and compare.

    I had his right G2 & G3 at ~9 inches as well as his left G2. Here’s another photo for an additional view.

    Do you think I’m off with my R-G2/G3 & L-G2 estimate? I’ll defer to you as I see you’re from Illinois, so I’m sure you see alot more trophy bucks than me (I’m serious when I say this, I’m not tring to be sarcastic).

    I’m thinking that he’s a 3.5 year old buck.
