There is no way that buck is even over 150". I think you posted he was 161" and some change. Did you count the spread measuement twice? I think your measure tape is screwed up or something.
Take the bottom pic for example. A mature bucks ears are around 6 inches long from where they attach to the head to the tip of the ear give or take. Compare that ear to its mains and G's

There is no doubt it is a nice buck...but it is nowhere near 160".

Great looking mount, excellent choice of pose. Thats one of the better mounts that I've seen outside of Texas Even though he drinks on the job, the taxidermist still does a nice job. Congrats on the buck and make sure to post pictures when you finally get him on your wall.

There are also 2 members that have saw this deer in person. In fact one of them helped drag it out. The other hunts the property as well.

Mightymitehntr27 < helped drag

Treetalker < hunts the farm

Maybe you could ask them their opinions?

Buckeyebuckhntr:

Nice mount and buck.

But I doubt that buck scores 161 3/8, I just scored it myself using those exact measurements you had posted, and for P and Y is scored 135 4/8, Buckmasters 142 5/8, and Safari Club International 161 1/8. There are a lot of deductions because of the difference in measurments, and not to mention there is no G-4 on the one antler. The total of abnormal points is 8 6/8, that is deducted because the buck is a Typical. The difference in measurments on tine length and circumfrence totals 17 1/8. Right there you have 25 7/8 in deductions.

But it is a fine buck, no doubt there!

If that deer scores anything over 130, I would be surprised!!!

Actually I believe it is close. All those points start adding up really quick!!

I do have one question though....


Left side

MB 26 4/8
G1 3 6/8
G2 10 2/8
G3 9
Right side

MB 24 5/8
G1 4 4/8
G2 9 3/8
G3 8 6/8
G4 3 6/8
Do you have left and right flip flopped or is it just my imagination? From what I can tell the right side has 3 scorable and the left has 4 scorable.
