Ok,if I remember right the hint would lead me to believe low 150's correct?
I think thats what you and your brothers have to stay under in order to have rights to harvest with approval of course from lease members.
Is I close now! lol

OK, here's the total for the shed "as I found it". He's broken his beam from 1 inch in front of the little drop.

Total 58 4/8.

Actually, you're probably pretty close. I'll post specifics later. Like I said, that is as I found it, with a good bit of beam broken. 1 inch in front of the little drop.

OK, no more guesses. Here are the measurements of the shed:

G1 3 4
G2 6 0
G3 11 0
G4 8 0

Mass measures 4 1, 3 4, 3 4, 3 4

Beam 15 4, but is broken an inch in front of the left semidrop.

I figure 17 inside. Right side measurements look really close to left with addition of right side drop of about 5 4.

He sure looks good on camera John!
Should touch upper 140 and maybe 150 right now.The g2's hurt his score but hopefully he keeps them short so you can get him on the hit list this upcoming season.Pray for that other drop to stay gone also! lol

He's a protein hound. Hasn't been all his life, but when we put up the feeder where these pics were taken, he took to it with a vengence. I figure he's got 29 inches in mass, 17 inch inside spread, and 23 inch beams. for about 92down. 62 or so up for 154. Should be within a couple inches of that. If he stays at 154 or less, he'll make it past the partners and we can have a shot at getting him. If he stays here, but grows the other drop, he'll be near 160 and we won't have a chance. If he shows a lot of improvement from the protein, then he'll grow way out of our league.

This buck looks GOOD in person. His shed surprised me. Even with it in my hand I was trying to give him more than he had. I have remeasured him several times to make sure I'm reading the tape right.

I have to admit I was waiting for the answer to see how close I was first. I was thinking mid 160"s. There is alot of these posts every year but I enjoy them and always learn a little from each one. Thanks Doc

I got his point lengths right... gave him too much credit on his beams... figured they would carry his base to 100 or a little over...

He's a good looking deer. I doubt with his protein appetite that he'll stay in my range, especially if he gets the other drop back.

Even with the shed in my hand, it was hard for me to believe the score. He just looks GOOD! His mass fooled me because he has eliptical beams and they look good from the side, but score lower.

We can kill any mature deer that we can get approved. Up to 150ish, we don't have to go through anyone. We find it and kill it. If it's bigger, close to 160, we have three second tier hunters that have to pass on the deer first. If they want it they can have it....but, we don't have to tell them where it is. LOL Over that, the price becomes prohibitive for us. So, what we look for are 150 class bucks, they're big enough and keeps us from having to worry about anyone else. AJ from my previous thread will probably be one of two that really get my attention, and this buck will deserve a look, but he'll be too big in the end.

So you're limited to only killing mature bucks in the 150s, after that anything 160 and up costs you an additional trophy fee? I was curious as to what "range" meant as well.

Yeah, we can kill as big a deer as we're willing to pay for and that we can get by the 5 people that have claiming rights above us. A 160 would cost me about 4500, so odds are I won't kill one. A good price for a lease with that kind of deer, but with my other two leases and the money I spend on protein in San Angelo, I don't see me killing one that big, even if I got it approved. 150 class does me just fine.
