Here's my New Mexico Mule Deer. I still hope to kill a bigger buck in Texas but I'll enter this one for now. The way I read the rules if I kill a bigger buck it will just replace this score in the contest.
Gross score is 147 2/8 multiplied by 86% for a reduction since it is a mule deer and that counts 126 5/8 toward the contest.
Here's the picture of the buck:
And the scoresheet off the B&C site:
Live on 51 acres in Lubbock county.
Own and hunt on 160 acres in Fisher county.
