I get 160-161 but feel I am shorting him beams since I can not judge the length. Even with that score he looks much bigger than the score.

I got 156, which is awesome for a main frame 8. I may be shorting him on mass and beams, but idk.

How old do you think this buck is encinal? I am guessing 5 or 6, but have a feeling you know the answer.

Don't know what he will score, but looking at the effects of the rut on his weight, I'm sure that it is more than he will weigh!

He is pushing 170. He might get there depending on how much the extras score. Gotta love a big 8. I think he will score 160 as an 8 pt.

Ok Encinal, is that a "Cull"?

He is easily 140, maybe more and in my book that's a trophy.

On some ranches he is a "cull" yes he's a trophy of a lifetime, but to some ranches a 160" deer is not what they're looking to grow

No one that knows what they are doing is shooting this deer as a management deer out of a native herd.

Okay not so much "cull" but one of their "management trophies" or lower end trophies would be better put

I agree it's not a cull, but there are places, that do cull/kill 160" deer to keep them from breeding does. Might not be native or could be within a high fence that knows what they have in their

Agreed. "Native" is the key word here. Height of the fence doesn't matter.

Incredible deer. I think he is 165+
