Please guess the score of my buck

[img][IMG]http://i46.tinypic.com/2ikclxc.jpg[/img][/img] I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could give me an approximate score on my buck. I harvested him on November 7, 2012 at 4:30 p.m.. I then took him to the taxidermist so I can't score him. The best I can tell you is that he has a 15" inside spread and 29" main beams. He is an 8 point. I'm guessing he will gross around 125" but would like to hear some other opinions. Thanks very much for your time. Good Hunting, Jeff

Re: Please guess the score of my buck

125 seems like a pretty good estimate to me. Not a ton of mass, but very good length on all of the points.

Re: Please guess the score of my buck

29" mains? Thats huge.

Spread- 15"
mains- 58"
G1's- 8
G2's- 17"
G3's- 17"
Mass- 26"

I'd say if he does have 29" mains 125 is a no brainer

Re: Please guess the score of my buck

The main beams look more like 21 or 22, and that would be good. 29" main beams are very, very big for a young buck like that -- actually for any whitetail. Without seeing much of the body, I'm thinking he's young because the main thing he lacks is mass.

I pretty much agree with HammerDown15, whose figures put the buck over 140". He looks more like a 125" to 130" buck, but if unless HD's numbers are dramatically off, you have a 125" buck with lots of room to spare. If you drop 7" from the 29" measurement of both main beams, I'd say he still makes 125". Wowser!

If you like long-tined, very symmetrical typicals, that's the one. He'd be on my hit list.

Re: Please guess the score of my buck

My guess is 125-130 gross. Ive got an 8 that grossed 112 1/8 and yours has longer tines than mine, but my buck had almost 20" beams, 18 3/8", spread, and a little better mass than yours. No way they are 29" beams. Spread looks dead on at 15. Good tine length but thin mass. Really nice buck though and it should look great on the wall. Congrats.

Re: Please guess the score of my buck

That is a very nice buck.My best guess would be 120 to 125". It does not look like he would have many deductions as his rack is very even but lacking mass.. I killed a 10 point two years ago that grossed 140 5/8". His antlers were very even too but the mass really added to his score.
