Default I am really terrible at scoring, please help

This fellow is probably 3.5 years old, and will likely walk this year. But what do you think he will score? I am really bad at scoring, but my guess is around 120. Thanks for your help. I should visit this forum more than the Campfire gossip forum. It would be more helpful.

How wide do you think he is? JeffK, you may be right, he might be a 4.5 year old...
The 3rd picture shows his main beam to be a little heavier than I imagined.

Best way to get better at scoring is to have several pics where you can get a good eyeball average, go through the rack like you have a tape in your hand, and then ground-check for comparison.

These pictures aren't the best, but here goes:

G1s look like 3"
G2s 7" or 8"
G3s 9"
Beams 19"
Spread 15"
Mass C1 4"...C2 3.5"...C3 3.5"....C4 2" (13" of mass per side)


So:

Mass 26"
Beams 38"
Spread 15"
Tines 39"

Total 118"

If you write down your guesses, you'll get better and better with each deer you kill and you'll get to where you really know the size of your local deer. I like to set live pictures of old scored kills up against the current deer on camera, it really helps when evaluating pics.
