Default Leaf River IR Big Buck

How much do you think this guyweighs? I got him 4 different days last week. This is the 3rd year I've gotten him on cam. He was a 16" basic 8pt 2 years ago. Last year he was a little wider, alot heavier, and taller. This year he has about the same mass, has a little more width, is taller, and grew some kickers off his g2's. His body is what is impressive to me. It's the biggest bodied deer I've gotten on any of my cams. I'm guessing he is around 5 1/2 years old.
PS the time is backwards. It's actually 4 in the morning.

Hopefully I'll get that chance to call someone for help. I definitly won't be able to get him out alone if he is shot any wherenear to where this pic is. Swamp city! I'm thinking he is in more of the 220+ range personally. I've gotten alot of 175-190lb bucks on my cama few days before I killed themand he just drawfs those guys. They are all on 35 flim and I don't have a scanner or I would post one for everyone to compare.I know he isatminimum 5 1/2years old or older. I've gottenhimon my camera for 3 years straight and the 1st year he was a studthat I guessed at 3 1/2yrs.

Here is an 8pt and a10pt I got on my cam this past week. This10pt will sport a 180-185lb on the hoof weight. He is a average kill on our lease andtheir weights are prettyconsistent in the 180lb rangegoing off history. The 8pt will be in that same range. He looks a little lighter than the 10pt to me though.Maybe 170lb or so. Their necks, shoulders, guts, and ham's aren't near as big as the big one above though.
