Hi my name is michael and i am new to this site. I joinedthis sitebecause i knew thatthe peoplewho chat in this bowhunting forum truly love the sport. I have just taken up bowhunting this year and got my first deer ever. He has 11 points with a 19 inch inside spread. I was wondering what you guys thought the gross score and net score on this buck would be since i cannot do it myself because he is at the taxidermy. Below is another picture of him. There are no pictures of him in the field becuase we forgot to bring a camera.Thanks for the replys.

There's something to say about beginners luck. He sure looks good from a guy in Pa. I would say 140" good luck and thank's for the pics

michael...welcome to the site...are both those pics of the same deer??? I ask because in the bottom pic on the deers right side (the side touching ground) his G3 has an obvious bend in it. In the top pic, the deer appears to have perfectly straight tines. The brow tines also look way more impressive in the first pic. IS this just the lighting or angles maybe, because to me they look like different deer. Congrats though on a find buck(s) lol.

actually i looked at it again and the G3's on both sides look nothing alike in both pics. Hell, except for the hair...that don't even look like the same kid...anybody else agree? I hope I'm wrong or confused but...

G1-3.5
G2-8.5
G3-9
G4-3.5
Main beam-22
Mass-4.5,4,3.5,3

Which makes one side=59
Doubled=121
Plus 19 spread=140

Now I fudged everything low, so realistically probably in the low to mid 140's?

Why don't you ask your taxidermist to put a tape measure on him orjust ask him to eyeball the gross score. I shot a buck back in 1993 and we knew he would be right around 125 net give or take 1/2 an inch. We knew this by taping it out and the taxidermist said it was going to be real close to P&Y just by eyeballing the rack. After the 60 day drying out period I went and picked up the rack, brought it to an official scorerthen brought it back to the taxidermist. It went 126 4/8 gross and 125 2/8 net. I am sure your taxidermist will give you the rack to get it scored by an official scorer. Thats one awesome buck and I think its got at least 20 inches on mine so I think it will go in the mid-upper 140's.
