Default Opinions on score.

I've got a pretty good idea. Finally saw him in person at about 30 yards last weekend. Maybe not the best pics of him but had one person say he looked mid 140s.

One from early July and the others 2 are about 2 weeks old.

Well in full velvet I’m guessing 200 but there’s some serious bone under there too.I’m guessing he sheds out around 180

Don't know of he will go 180. His mass and main beams got me questioning myself a little though. I've got him in the 167-173 range looking a pictures but when I saw him in person I really thought I might be low.

That deer has a lot going on there. Mass counts a lot and makes the rest look smaller. I say 175-80

Do you have any velvet and hard horned pics of that deer. This guy has me very perplexed. My initial thought what he would shed out and be around 48" on mass. But when I looked at him from last year and one of his sheds i found in the spring, I thought maybe closer to 42". It will be a littler easier to tell when he sheds in the next few weeks.

Is beams have me a bit confused as well. I don't know if he has a 95" frame or 111" frame.

I am going to say he's 100'' - plus all of his tine measurements.

Deer with alot of trash usually throw me way off, but I think he's a mid 160's deer.

its crazy to talk about a deer possible having over 45" of mass, without it being one of those big uglies...... But I know its hard for a deer to have that much without the beams having some webbing or palmation. This buck looks to have round beams all the way up.

Yes he flattens out some from the 4s to the tips but otherwise he basically has soup cans growing out of his head.

yeah that part looks like it flattens out but wont score....I will say that this buck is in the 160's with average mass, add in all that mass and your looking at 180's imo

Not knowing your age criteria is this deer gonna be on your hit list? If so can’t wait to see him on the ground and I think he’s in the 80s. Good luck sir.

How big is this new place you got?
Looks like you have a lot of bucks in that 180” to 200” range. So I would think this one is right in there as well.

500 acres...doing survey for mld right now. I think I have about 40 +/- a few bucks still combing through 20k photos from the last 3 weeks. There were 24 bucks shot off the place in 2019 and thru nov of 2020 when I closed on it. Not much age on anything. I bet 4-5 that are 5+. I have this guy at 5 this yr.

No way this deer is 180-200. First off, he's in velvet which gives an inaccurate representation of his mass. Secondly, he has a small spread. I would guess he is in the 150' range after he sheds the velvet and shrinks into the season.

Zero chance this is only a 150' range deer!

Wrong on all counts. That deer is an absolute unit. Looking forward to watching this one. I see 180 all day long as well. Ready to see some hard horned pics though!
