They look comparable to a deer I shot last year (my biggest), I scored him to about 125, with a broken time that would have brought into the 130s.

I'm no scoring expert, but I spent some time trying to estimate him while he was at the processor and all I had was photos to go on. Doing a little research brought up a rule of thumb that was very helpful: Anything that pushes the Boone and Crocket minimum is probably going to be a 10 pt. frame, not an 8 pt, An eight point that does is often very, very impressive looking because it has to overcome the lack of tines with mass, spread, and good tine length with the ones it does have.

I've messed around a bit estimating deer photos using that rule of thumb, and it seems to hold true.
