Default Downed My first Giant Whitetail!!!!

It was Dec 8th at my neigbors property, i was sitting in my blind, when i heard some cracking coming from my right, first a spike,(its about 6 degres out and snow 5-6 inches) then bam i look to my right this monster came out at 20 yards then went to 30 yards, Pulled back and let the arrow fly, found 1 hour later, This buck has a 17 inch spread inside his eye guards are 6 1/2 inches the base of the horns is 5 1/2 inches Around this buck has very good mass, g2s are 7 inches g3s 6 1/2 inches but stays 2-3 incehs all around the deers horns. now heres a problem, this buck is a 4x4 but on the right side it has a 3/4 inche point coming out would it be a 4x5 or on the same antler in the back theres a 1/2 point now would it be a 4x6?? the left is fine what would it be?? thanks i try to get pics on later!!!

Congrats.

A point must be 1 inch to be counted as a point. So it would be a 4X4.

While buckeyebuckhntr is right that a point has to be an inch long... I disagree that it is only a 4x4. It's a 4x4 witha bit of trash or character mind you!!

Here's my first first buck back in 83. He was a main frame 5x5, had 1 sticker point over an inch and 7 wannabe points ( most just fell under an inch ). So no he isn't an 18 pointer... but he does have character. LOL



Congrats on yourbuck!! Looking forward to the pictures.
