I actually never put a pencil to him until now. I was just going by frame and "feel" and thought he'd struggle to get above 135". After putting the pencil to him I guess he might make low to mid 140's. Nothing more than that for sure.

After adding him up, I got 134, on an 85" frame. It looks fairly compact but the pics could be deceiving. I assume he is on the hit list this year?

I am coming up with a score just under 140.

Age.... at least 6.5, probably older.

I have the same thoughts. I don't think he's going to hit 140, so I'm thinking 135ish. And old as hell.

There is no arguing his age. Looks 7+ to me. And score...probably around 140 or so. But I just eyeballed him real quick and didn't add anything up. Couldn't even tell you how many points he has.

Great deer to post up for debate. He very well could be a 10yr as it looks like his snout/head has already started to shrink up and look young again. I see a mid 130 class buck without adding him up.

I agree low 130's. Big question is what kinda beer is in the water throughs. Can't be lite beer. I'm guessing Pearl or Lone Star. Rack isn't much but that is one impressive beer gut.

Well he would be on the hit list but this is a new ranch that has never been hunted so we were given very few buck tags-relative to the acreage. As it stands right now he would be considered a "trophy" and there is no one who will shoot him as a "trophy". Sooooo, I do believe this old timer will get to live out his life in fine fashion. Honestly, he probably isn't doing any harm other than one more mouth to feed. Pretty sure his sparking days are over!

Here is a close up of his antlers. We have a lot of those extra brow kickers on the northern part of the ranch it seems.

Old as heck and I'm saying upper 120's....
Would like to see those who are saying high 140's and up to post some measurements so I could compare

Edit: after that last picture I can see the junk around his browtine and I'll say low 130's

Double Edit: 129 is my final prediction

Yea I just re-did my figures and came up with low '30's. Who knows. Either way, more than likely he won't get shot this year. Just a good one to debate. Appreciate all the replies.

Agree in all the above...big fat belly, kinda young face look, loose skin, thin antlers, sure signs of an old deer he might be 7 or 8 years old... bet he was great 3 years ago I would say he`s something around 130`s now
