Default Help estimating score of Harris County low fence buck

I killed my first buck 4 years ago and he was a pretty big 8pt taken from private low-fence land in Harris County. I just killed my 5th buck on the same piece of property, finally besting my first buck. My problem is that I dropped him off at the taxidermist before measuring or aging him. My family and hunting buddies keep asking me what he scored and I'm not an experienced guesstimator. He has 6pts on one side and 4 on the other, so the net score will be low.

For reference, I'm 6'-6" and 250Lbs (if that helps at all)

Thanks!

Your taxi should let you come in and score it. He'll have it skull capped hanging on a rack.

Really pretty deer. Iím no scoring guru at all but Iíll say pushing 140. If he had a G4 on that left side he would probably get there.

Best I can come up with is 127". Hope that does not disappoint you sir. I tried to be as accurate as "I" think I can get to the true score.

I don't mess with net scores. BUT, it appears to be roughly 6" of deducts that would end up at 121".

Either way, it is a pretty good deer for Harris County. I am not considering the protected deer I have seen in the county that are in some of those neighborhoods. I saw one one time that I do believe would have hit the 170's or **** close. It was in Atascocita.

Congratulations.

It's too late for that. I was lucky to even get these pics. It was just me and my wife and she wasn't going to touch a dead animal lol. PLUS, I need to look into the correct way to photograph game animals. My dad always tells me I did it wrong, but that is the extent of his advice.

Around the 130 mark maybe a touch less.

Gross score is for hunters, net is for researchers - someone from Boone & Crockett club

Thanks everyone! I'll see if the taxidermist has time to measure it, they seemed pretty swamped. I'll update when I get a number.

After reading about how to take LDPs, I wish I could go back in time.

I agree with most, low 130 ‘s.
This just got me thinking, every body half years the deer for age, trying to be precise I guess. But not many go “eighths” on rack size, which is a far more important measurement now days.

He does look like him, only mine is smaller. It looks like both of their left G2s are huge. Thatís an awesome buck!
