I've killed a few in the 130's and had a 150+ in front of me for a couple of sits that wasn't old enough for lease rules. The 150 was the prettiest deer I've ever seen. This said, I'm still looking for one over 140", which I consider a very good 8.

I really don't know Mike...I started a thread on him asking & it was all over the place. Really doesn't matter, if I like him & get an opportunity?? I think he is pushing 150 but velvet always throws me off.

Like others, score isn't super important but does give a guideline...if he impresses on the hoof as in the pics, it's a no brainer for me. I have an obsession for big clean 8's.

Depends where you hunt. 130" 8 point for a large part of Texas is a big 8 point.

I always heard the old timers say "It takes a lot to get an eight out of the 130s. " I was fortunate enough to take this eight at the beginning of November last year. Ended up going 142. My biggest buck to date

Yes I know...he's a "9" with the split brow. Even with that deduction he's in the upper 130's. Mature deer. Have to admit it wasn't a bow kill. Had a bow and a gun with me but he was 100+ yards. Anyway, my first TX buck- rough creek lodge in glen rose.

The buck I killed in Ohio grossed over 180" as a main frame 8 and 235ish otherwise with trash. Chance love did the mount and several on here have seen him. But since I killed him on a 1400 acre high fenced ranch up north hes not legit. Whatever impressive buck regardless
