Default what does he score?

This fall will be my third year after this buck I believe (if he's the same basic 10 I saw in 2008)

Extreme mass, he's a 250-275 pound buck or bigger (Kansas deer), typical 5x5 though one side is bigger

Guess? I've seen 190" on his frame ..... a bit high maybe?

Great looking buck. I don't think he will make 190 however. The short G4 will hurt his score somewhat. Its really hard scoring from a picture but I would say gross 180ish and still net over 170. Awesome buck.

A buddy of mine got one similar to that one a few years ago, net was 187+. So I would think this year this guy should be over 200. Besides nets are for fish

Well, I know you don't live in Kansas to tack this deer for weeks on end. So figured someone did it for you.

You guys are seeing 180+ on this buck? He has good mass and tine length, but the main beams don't look that long and the spread doesn't look that wide.

I'm thinking it's more like a 160".

With that being said, I'd definitely shoot it and it would probably be my career best.

The average mature bucks ear is 6 1/2-7 inches long. With that said, I would say this buck has 22-23" beams. Doesn't seem like a lot but his tine length and his awesome mass will add up in a hurry. I have measured a lot of bucks over the years and I'm pretty sure this buck is 180+
