Default what would this deer score?

I will let you know, that I have been bow hunting deer for 23 years, and can most of the time guess deer within a few inches. I guessed this deer to be pushing 140". My buddies, who have also hunted quite a few years, thought it would be lucky to hit the 140" mark. I will let you know I took this deer last friday evening, so I know what it scores. When this buck stepped out in front of me it took about 2 minutes before I realized it was the same deer in the trailcam picture. This deer fooled me for reason, I had never seen any bucks I have taken in the past, have what this deer has. Maybe you can guess what he scored and what was different that throw me off from the other deer I have taken around central and southeast ohio.

Like I said the score was not something crazy, but when I got to him after he was down is what surprised me. He weighed 254 lbs field dressed, butcher said he had to be right at 300lbs live weight. The butcher said that he never weighs deer, but he had to put that one on the scale, because he had never seen one come in that size.The buck scored 161 7/8", the neck measured 22" and is not in rut. for some reference I'am 6',259lbs, first deer I could not drag out and load by myself

That deer is a house. I'm glad your buddies were wrong. The first picture I saw I actually laughed to myself at your buddies guesses. My guess was 155 ish and I wasnt off by much.. Glad you could prove your buddies wrong. LOL, a thick long-tined 10 point not even making 140...? What were they smoking?
