Mexico MF 8 - Age & Score
 
6 Attachment(s)
This is a passthrough for a buddy. He wants some opinions on age and score. He is torn if he should take this for his trophy. He doesn't see what I think I see! :D

I would shoot this deer at first sight! I do have some history with this deer. I used to hunt on this place and saw this deer 2 years ago. It looks very similar except with the addition of the kickers off the bases and slightly bigger everyone else...

Love big MF 8s with chunk! ;)b:eek:

X2 Agreed

160class 10-17-2011 09:54 PM

130s maybe 140, depends on the place and the horns yall are seeing down there, heck of a buck though

TildenHunter 10-17-2011 09:59 PM

I think that he is 140s and pushing 150. Nice buck

Postoaks 10-17-2011 10:00 PM

Any breakdown of yalls scores???

130s never crossed my mind on this deer!

Tomkat70 10-17-2011 10:01 PM

I agree 140s nice and fat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Slick8 10-17-2011 10:02 PM

I passed on a large MF 8 with both brows splitting like this one because he was a bit you and I was hunting a large bodied old 9. Lost the lease after that year and after lots of theapy I'm sorta ok with it...sorta.

I hunt small pastures (currently 350 acres) in an area where everyone hunts, now if I like what I see and it floats my boat and it's over 3.5 I won't hesitate.

160class 10-17-2011 10:03 PM

im not really good at it, i can just tell what a good buck is ha and its a great buck!

tmurray 10-17-2011 10:11 PM

I'm with your buddy on this one, not a trophy by Mexico standards. Definitely would love to have him, heck of a character buck, but not what I crossed the border for.

deer99hunter 10-17-2011 10:16 PM

just my guess -
1's - 8"
2's - 20"
3's - 18"
xtra - 10"
MB's - 44"
Ma - 36"
W - 15"

151" give or take

This is more similar to what I think. I gave him more on his beams and tines but less on his mass. I have this deer closing on mid 50s and really cant get him underneath 150. Someone needs to grab the cerveza from my hand before I talk my buddy into shooting him and then him being disappointed...:D:rolleyes::eek:

deer99hunter 10-17-2011 10:32 PM

1 - I don't like to give scores on deer still in velvet, I'm just not good at it
2 - THAT BUCK HITS 150" no doubt !
3 - anyone that would be disappointed with a main frame 8 that goes 150 has way to high of expectations, JMHO

Kingslayer 10-17-2011 10:34 PM

That buck is pushing right at 150

sundownbrown 10-17-2011 11:03 PM

You can beat a big bruiser 8 like that

Ol' Squeek 10-17-2011 11:08 PM

150'ish...give him another year he doesnt look 51/2 yet...awesome buck though

Postoaks 10-17-2011 11:11 PM

Here is a crappy video of what I think is this deer 2 years ago. Can't really tell much from it but he is the one in the center. I have other better and closer video but not downloaded...


Muddy Bud 10-17-2011 11:17 PM

He'll definatley break 140". Thinking closer to 150".

Postoaks 10-18-2011 08:12 PM

ttt

rpmhotshot 10-18-2011 08:56 PM

mid 140's is my guess good deer tho would not wait a nother yr dirt nap him asap

huntkp 10-19-2011 12:26 PM

I'd definitely say he's in the 140's easy with all that trash at the base of his 1's, nice deer I'd ground check him

Hollywood 10-19-2011 12:39 PM

Age may fool ya on this one.
I clock him in at 5 1/2 to 6 1/2 for sure. Protein has him in great shape.

Definitely stretches the tape to 150"
Awesome deer.

mjbtexas 10-19-2011 12:42 PM

Those are some serious dog catchers...

brzo23 10-19-2011 12:44 PM

Very nice buck!!!

Winman 10-19-2011 12:52 PM

I would take him in a heartbeat. A trophy is what you want and like ...and I would love to have him on my wall...I've got a big 6 and this would far eclipse him....

tommyp 10-19-2011 01:30 PM

136'
maybe 4.5 yrs

Oz_Ag 10-19-2011 01:47 PM

146 and 6.5 years old

codfish 10-19-2011 01:54 PM

145+ and 5.5

MAP 10-19-2011 05:36 PM

This buck is well over the mid 140's range..... I think some of ya'll are forgetting to add in the nontypical points

Stupid 10-19-2011 07:16 PM

I personally would never take an 8 in Mexico as a trophy - even if he had kickers and a drop. But that's me

This place isn't the caliber of your place Stupid! This is probably an average deer for you! Any thoughts on the score?

Yeah this deer has a kicker off each base besides his 8 MF. Kickers look to be 9-10" worth...

bu2herndog 10-19-2011 09:09 PM

Absolute monster of an 8.

No disrespect at all. He's a good lookn 8 and I would be happy to take him just not as my trophy. I have him mid to high 30's. The extra stuff off his brows make him unique to me. Good luck to your friend!

VCC 10-19-2011 11:39 PM

thats deer is over 140's... for some reason 153 sticks in my head when I look at him so im going with 153
Let us know what he scores once y'all knock him down!
Dang keep looking at him and having to edit what I think he'll score! He's a big 8! last pic makes him look high 150's

10-4. its a trophy to me

BSOB 10-20-2011 03:28 PM

I think he goes 140's also. Bruiser and looks to be mature also

Codie 10-20-2011 03:33 PM

I think the first time he lays a horn on a mequite he is going to loose about 10" of horn! better get him early! Great buck!

mitchbcs 10-20-2011 04:36 PM

Im sure the rest will call me CRAZY but im gonna say mid to upper 150's.... 157 to be exact!
15 w
45 mb
28 mass
11-1
24-2
20-3
14-extra

that has got to be the most unrealistic score I have ever seen you score! That deers G2 is more than 130" 's STUPID!:eek::p:D Seriously???? Score the mans buck...;)

150class 10-20-2011 04:48 PM

I'm thinking 140 as a straight 8 and 153' with thoes kickers

rw4 10-20-2011 05:27 PM

ground check asap

gusman 10-20-2011 09:38 PM

I say he is 150s

Well done, I like your thinking, mass might be a little less and yes it is hard to try and score a velvet buck, and I think that deer is plenty mature.
Good Luck

What????:eek:

This deer craps all over 130 for sure. I bet a nickel he goes over 150!

Mex. Bowhunter 11-02-2011 06:22 PM

I done told him I think he will go 150 at the Min. Most people don't understand that he weights over 200lbs.

8pointer 11-02-2011 06:25 PM

That buck will go 150" guys;)b
