Guaranteed good time. Putting my favorite and her favorite things together is bound to be the good luck Iíve been missing. Barbies just might be the lucky charm haha

Based only off those pics I'd say 4.5, head on shots are hard to judge age off of. Only thing I can see that would lead me to say older is the width of his brisket and the way his back knees are kicked together. Both of those usually indicate older for me but I wouldn't say 5.5 without a side pic. Too good a buck to make a bad call on

Good pass...I know itís hard to do and I commend you. Great buck! I also agree on the 4.5 age and a quick guess of 135Ē.

Thanks for the confirmation, dudes. That makes me feel better. My heart was in my throat watching him walk away.

My quick offhand scoring came up with 134.

I know how you feel. I took my daughter couple days ago. Told her that we needed to be quiet and at one point I look down at her and she was doing a dance number. Maybe off frozen.

Thanks fellas!! Yes .. I put a tape on him..

137 7/8. G3s kinda hurt him there but I'm not worried about the score with this one. I like the look. I'm a big brow junkie... and the matching kickers were a nice nice bonus.

I'm in agreement 100% but more folks then not judge their hunting experience and success in inches. Hell I've had no less than 10 folks say.. "that's all?" When I gave them the rough score. Yeah sorry to disappoint.
