Default Any ideas what he'd score?

I shot this guy on sat night in the Zirkel Wilderness Area (early season hunt). I never measured him but can tell you he has 5 inch thick antlers at his eye guards (with the velvet, which I'm sure makes him seem bigger). I didn't think to measure him before taking him to my taxidermist.

I'm not a trophy hunter, but I won't pass on a trophy!

This is the biggest deer I've ever shot, by a lot. See the attached pic.

Just wondering what you guys think he might score?

Thanks!

Very hard to tell from the pictures. Especially that right antler with the extra points. If I had to tag a wild guess I would say somewhere in the upper 170s to low 180s neighborhood. Great buck, congrats!

Nice buck, but I don't see any orange in the pic with you and the rifle. Hope you wore it during the hunt because CO requires 500 sq inches (including a hat) for all rifle and muzzleloading hunts. I had a friend get caught hunting deer without his orange hat and it cost him over $500 before it was all said and done.

Great looking Buck, not good at guessing so won't even try but will say congrats on a great deer.

Thanks for all the comments.

Flags...I was definitely wearing my orange hat/vest during the hunt. I took it off to start working on him.

Had a tough pack out. I'm finally over the soreness, but well worth all the effort. Already had two meals for the family... tenderloins and backstrap. I have meat marinating for jerky.
