I was thinking mid 30s. His body is huge, frame is really impressive. I got his g2s close to 12s with the banana curve and going off 5.5 ears. Ive been wrong before though, they are never as big as you want them to be lol

I can definitely see yalls numbers. He just showed back up since The end of June. The day time pictures make his frame and body look a lot bigger. Im most likely still hung up on what we thought he was going to be.

He doesn't have a main beam over 19 inches, and that's the long one. still a beautiful buck!

He’s a nice 8, probably 120-125. I’d be glad to burn a tag on him, especially with a bow!

a 130 8 is a very impressive deer , this one is pretty thin. low 120 I cant even get him close to 130 and I have killed a few 130+ 8s and you know automatically when you see one with question.

Yup a 130 8 point is very impressive. I think this deer is 5 or older and has a very big body is main reason I scored him a little bigger. Hes right up on the camera in these night pictures and his frame looks smaller. Ive seen lots of deer and he has that big look in most of his pics. Well see, wont know a dang thing til someone shoots him. I like to do these and then revisit them with a score later in the season. I think its the best tool we have in guessing deer from photos.. real life examples.

The question should be "is he mature?" I sure think he is and would shoot him regardless of the score.

I couldn't get him over 123. Short G3s, short main beams, and doesn't have the mass.

Well post up the numbers when you get him and we can see how close or far off we are.
Good luck!

How much did this deer weigh? It appears to be a dwarf if he only scored 130.

Smaller body but still weighed average. Just good close pictures I think. Head may have been smaller Vs average I didnt measure it to make sure. I had him low to mid 130s on camera but after I seen him in person I knew he would be alittle Less due to the short coupled body he has.
