123-124, it will be close the buck my daughter just shot was 190# on the hoof and 123 6/8”, he had a 7/8 g4 and a 1” kicker. Your buck has better brows so I think it’s gonna be close if his body is as big as I think. Very similar tine length and mass. Just depends how strict your policy is because if he went an inch either side of 125 it would not surprise me.

This is probably pretty spot on. Added him up to 119” with a 16” spread.

I think he would need to be a Kansas sized buck to make 125.

A saw and a file in the field can solve this problem also.

Id just get with the group and agree he needs to be killed as a management regardless of score

Not sure I can trust your math, I heard a rumor that once upon a time a certain "hunter" scored a certain 170"+ buck 157" on the hoof.

In all seriousness, now that I'm at my desk top I came up with 118" on the conservative side actually adding him up. I still think he hits 120 but def not 125.

It’s not that he ran that far, it was the height and thickness of the broom weed that made the track job so difficult. She and I appreciate the other lease members that helped us look and eventually find.

The rough thing for Ashton was that she had to leave before we found it. She had to pack up and leave the next morning due to her work schedule. But the facetime with her once we found her buck was priceless. Funny how one can go from the low of lows to the highest of excitement, as you can tell in the last photo....... Ha ha

Sorry for me having to be in one of the photos, but I was all she had………..Any one really good with photo shopping a photo or two please P.M. me, I would love to be able to have a couple of photos fixed with her in them.

Age = 6 with 10 score able points, will fully score tonight.
Beams = 23+
Spread = 21+

God Bless and best of luck to all.

Awesome buck! Congrats to you and your daughter

Had this guy show up last week, he’s new. Big fat boy! The big bucks at my place seem to show up for a day or two and disappear.

What do y’all think about this guy, I’m hoping to get my daughter on him in a few weeks.

That's what we did, we are a great group of guys all on the same page. The 125" requirement is actually in the lease agreement with the landowner.

Pulled one of two cards. Had deer the evening after I set the feeder. 2200 pics in 18 days, most of them with deer. Here were a couple of the better pics. Hard to tell age on the 10, but that was the only shot that was 100% that deer for sure. The tall heavy one with the forward sweeping horns was there a dozen times. Hope the kid can stick him this weekend.

Took this one this morning. 4.5 10 pt. did not have a chance to check the cameras before I hunted, but he was the only 10 on the cameras. Three eights that were at least as big or bigger on camera. Couldn’t resist those muley forks.

My wife Tracy killed this buck yesterday evening on our place in Concho Co. We had a velvet pic of this deer that’s about it. Perfect shot and 40 yard blood trail. Like it’s supposed to be. 8” brows and lots mass. Great deer for our place. Congratulations Tracy!!

So we went after “Doug” the controversial mature 8 point last night as the winds were supposed to change today and we wouldn’t have a chance. He was bedded up on the feeder when we walked up and never came back. This ol girl knew something wasn’t right the last hunt and this hunt, blowing and stomping and staring at the blind. She also liked kicking yearlings when they tried to eat her corn, she had to go. Samuel drilled her as soon as she got comfortable. RIP “Ol Stompy”.
