Default Another Score and Age, East Texas 8 point

Posted a couple pictures of this deer already. Finally got him in daylight, first ones of him in a long time.

Curious of what others think of age and score.

Last picture was him in 2015, when I 1st got him on camera.

This guy went 131" and weighed 204 pounds. I estimate your buck being 10"-12" bigger. More mass and main beams.

Spread I think is pretty spot on, thinking 17"- 18".

He is one heck of an 8. Takes a lot to get to upper 140s-150".

His ear tip to ear tip should be 15"-16" being mature.

Hope you get him! For a small piece of property he seems to like the place! Outsmart him and look forward to LDPs!

I think you are close. I shot an 8 that went 148 or 149 2 or 3 years ago.


Itís so hard to tell in velvet but I think he is in the 140ís for sure.

%100 I dont think he will make it. But hoping, ya I've seen what it takes to get a 150 8 point. Either way will be happy with whatever he scores as long as hes on the ground.

I am thinking 140 also and either 5 1/2 or 6 1/2. If his G 3's where 8 or 9 he would be close to 150. Good Looking deer.

I got all the same measurements except I only gave him 16" spread and 30" mass but I don't know how big the bucks are around there. If he's 200 pounds and 16" between ear tips then he could easily be over 140.

My buddy said, it looks like a doe with horns. Body isnt real big to me, or just the horns make him look smal. They do not get 200lbs around here. In East Texas, they get shot as soon as the are almost outside the ears lol.

Hard to tell but this deer was 16" wide. I think he is right there or maybe an in" wider.

I'm in East Tx/Henderson County. The bucks that get 5+ are every bit of 200 pounds. I have a couple toads this year and their bodies take away from their rack size. I have some good minded neighbors when it comes to letting deer walk though. I do have a couple if it's brown it's down neighbors as well. Most of the time how they hunt the deer are a lot smarter and avoid their tactics.

East Tx deer can get big! I estimated your deer live weight 175-190.

I wish I had your neighbors, cousin's usually have that mentality as well. They do not let deer grow. As well as all the old neighbors just wanting meat. They can get big, just like the one in Quitman a year or 2 ago that grossed 186" and was 200lbs easily. Just tough when every hunts just for legal deer, which most do around here so they never grow.
