gunna say youre a little low. I'd put him in the 130's for sure. I have 2 in the 150 range and 2 in the 120 range and he's right in between them.

Might be close to 130, but I'm thinking just under.

Looks like a 2 year old probably around mid 120's. I'm from Ohio and I would definitely give him 1 or 2 more years. You won't regret waiting on him.

I live in Ohio too. That is a nice deer. He looks healthy. I would guess he is a 2 year old but maybe 3 years old. I have been seeing quite a few deer in the beans on the farms by where I live. I am thinking it is going to ber a good archery season here. I can't wait. Good Luck this season and good job on the trail cam pics.

i was thinking more like high 140's hereis another pic of him. i think he is at least a 3.5 year old. thats why i put pics on here to get tons of input. i shot 2 year old 8pt last year that dressed 180lbs and grossed 119 and i had trail pics of him and this deer is alot bigger.

I would not go any higher than 135! I also think he is a 2.5 year old so I would give him one more year and you wont regret it!

I think you're pretty close Jeff, I'm getting 124" guestimating him.

He's a nice deer, looks like he'd be better if he gets another year on him, but if he's what you want put the smackdown on him.

Being that he's still in his velvet I'd give him atleast a 130" score.
