Default For you guys complaining about scores (Quiz)

I've attached a picture of a buck my dad killed in 2003. The buck on the left is a 5x4, it has been measured by an offical pope&young scorer...for all the guys, that think inches are being added- whats your guess on his score??



I'll wait a few days and give these "expert" scorers a chance to answer before i post the offical measurement.

I agree with BW I get low 150's gross and 143 net. Hard to see the mass and the length of tines on the right beam in the pic. Had to guess on em all.

BTW why are you so touchy on the subject anyways?

Touchy?? deffinetly not. Irritated-yes! Its very very difficult to judge a buck by picture alone and i feel its pretty ingnorant for people to question to scoring of a fellow member. Especially when all they have to go off of is a photo. So far this theory is proving correct, as neither guess provided is very close...

Right
25 inch main
3 inch g1
8 inch g2
9 inch g3
6 inch g4
5 inch h1
4 1/4 inch h2
4 inch h3
3 3/4 h4


Left
25 inch main
4 inch g1
8 inch g2
9 inch g3
5 inch h1
4 1/4 inch h2
4 inch h3
3 3/4 h4

20 inch spread

151 inches.

Thats what I get from the pic you can only really see 1/2 the rack though. Its hard to guesstimate because you cant really see the g2, g3 and g4 from one another in the pic on the right main beam they all blur together from the angle.

Nice buck

I'm by no means an expert scorer. In fact I don't even know how to measure/score a buck. If I were to guess I would have said high 130's.

He might make 125"? It takes a heck of a nice 8pt to make book and as a typical that 5th point making him a 9 isn't helping his net score any.

I say 128". Why not.

I'm agreeing with Matt on this one . I'm guessing he's a 125 since he's an 8 point he look's pretty similar to the buck I've been chasing the last 2 season's .I'm guessing the buck I'm chasing is close to 140 but he's a 12 point this season .Just my guess ,I'm not to good at guessing these rack size's up to this point but maybe I'm close this time .

Guy's ! I've got to say that there's no need to be complaining about score's ,just remember this is for FUN nobody stands to gain by adding inch's .
