I've been waiting to see if there is still a 12 pt hanging around this year, but so far no luck. However, this new 9 pt is 200 yds behind the house. What do you guys think? I'm not very good at estimating age and size, but I'm guessing 3 1/2 yrs and about 125". I don't think I'd be able to let him walk without knowing something bigger isn't in the neighborhood.

On another note, I looked at last year's scorecard and The Dark Horses had 850" total. That has kinda been the average winning score the last few years. Break it down and thats 85" per person. Jjones got a great start for us by almost doubling that. With several of the pics I've seen in this thread I think we have a great chance of winning this thing.

Good luck and shoot straight!

The way I understand it is we go by gross score(I may be wrong) and that deer should easily gross 135" or bigger.

You are correct, we do go by gross score. I was just pointing out what the average ends up being per person for the team. Last year there was 50 teams of 10 people and most of them had less than 4 deer entered. Even the returning champs took 3 zeros, they simply had the most entries. Don't get me wrong, I am not suggesting shooting a deer merely to win. Only shoot what you will be happy with. I was simply noticing the caliber of deer our team has taken in the past and already has tabs on for this season could put us over the top quite easily.

Back to my deer...here are a couple more pics, that in my opinion make him look a little smaller than the straight-on shot.

We could always mess with the defending champs a bit and change the deer in our avatar to a black horse. As in "Lights Out" for their reign as the archery champs.

I don't know if its the easiest way, but I right clicked the avatar and saved it to my computer. Then go to your profile and click "User CP", "edit Avatar", scroll to the bottom, click "use custom avatar", then upload image from computer using the browse button (you just have to know where you saved it).
