Its that time again. I think the one with the split G2 and the one with the long brows score very similar. What's the breakdown?

Middle one looks to be the old man of the bunch.
Other 2 are probably 4 year olds, bottom maybe 5
All score pretty close to each other

I think the one with the big brows will score the best out of the 3. I think he will be high 30s close to 140. The other two I think will be around high 120s to 130.

I have the top and bottom bucks in the mid 120s and the middle buck in the high teens.

That may be closer to accurate. Not sure what the body weights of your bucks typically are. That plays a big role in guessing from a trail cam pic.

Admittedly, I just gave my numbers from an eye ball test and did not do any math. I think the top buck will outscore the others though. Those brow tines will help.

Our mature bucks usually weigh between 165 and 185 on the hoof. Pre rut.

Top bucks sheds from last year. He went 123 assuming a 14" spread. The middle buck has been on the cull list for the last 2 years because he'd been slick on his left side for the 4 years I've known him. Crazy what age and a little rain will do.

I have that top buck right at 125. You mind giving a breakdown on what gets him to 135? Just curious on where our difference is. Here's my breakdown. I Hope YOU'RE right...

Sure, here you go. Again, that was 7/24 and based on what I'm seeing him still blunted and slightly bulbed, he's going to be more. These are based on what I think he will be. Also, you said 123" last year right? I think you'll pleasantly surprised. I might even be low.

jt400 it looks like there is a strong 8 point genetic on your property and these are all very nice deer. Time length is real strong in this herd it appears to me. Big 8s in my opinion are very desirable and for and few between. Would take a mature 130 class 8 point any day of the week over a 10 or 12 in same 130 range. Thanks for sharing. I love this time of year getting to see everyone else’s possible targets.

I likes me some big 8's. We have quite a few 10s as well. Most of them need one more year. In fact most of our deer are 8s up to about 4 yrs old. They generally get g4s when they get older.

Good point. I always wondered how many good 8s would actually gain G4ís if given the opertunity.
