What percentage of 3.5 yr old bucks (assuming they're carrying both sides of their rack with no points broken off) would GROSS P&Y in your area?

I would say 2-3%.....but honestly.....I've never seen one, to know.

Wow that is SOOOO tough... good question though. I would agree and say 2-3% of the bucks in my area are P&Y I have seen many over the last couple years... and saw quite a few over 130" this year... yeah 2-3 isa good guess.

I would probably say 75%. I've shot a few 3.5's that are wide, but don't have the length, or tall, but don't have the width. And at 3.5, most don't have incredible mass. And I said most, not all.
