Not that I care all that much but I think that he might make Pope and Young and so I am getting him scored when 60 days are up on the 15th.

Any thoughts on possible score? He’s 22 1/2” wide outside but I never took another measurement on him before dropping him off at the taxidermist.

Picture can be very deceiving at times but I don't think he will. I think he'll be around 121".

It's going to be close I have him right in that 125-130 range gross. I'd say 128ish gross and who cares about nets. Looks pretty symmetrical, he has a chance. Nice buck.

I think you are gonna be 6 or 7 inches short but who cares? That would be a heck of buck to me. Good pics too.

I agree with what everyone else is saying...close, but I don't think he has the point length. Those eight points need loooong points to make the books.

Heck of a nice buck. I hope you do make it.

Awesome buck!! Don't be disappointed if he doesn't make it!! Great job getting it done with the bow!

This buck grossed 130". Lacks spread (15") but has good main beams (22"+), tine length is decent, mass is ok and symmetry was also good. I don't have the sheet in front of me but I believe he netted 126-127". I'm an amateur scorer for sure so don't take that to the bank!! I tried being conservative because of that, so, who know's. My brother in-law who has measured deer in the past had him grossing at 132". That 2" makes a big difference.

Your buck has the spread, I'm not sure on beam length but it looks good. Overall tine length looks marginal. Looks like he will score pretty evenly but a hair short. I hope I'm wrong and the pictures are deceiving.

Hate judging your buck like that because he's certainly a well earned trophy.
