Default Another one bites the dust

As alot of you know, the MO rifle season opened this weekend and I was fortunate (or unfortunate, depends on how you look at it) to tag out on 2 deer by 7:45 AM on saturday morning. I saw the 8 point right at first light and knew that a warm front was pushing it's way toward NE MOsoI decided to take him. It was about a50 yard shot thru the timber and it took two to drop him. As I was dragging him out of the woods, I happen to look behind me, and wouldn'tyou know it, a bigger 8 point was staring at me at about 40 yards. I assume he was on the trail of this guy and they were going to have a sparing match (which would have been cool to watch from my stand).Since I had the wind in my favor, this otherguy apparently had noidea what I was and he actually watched me dragthe 8 point I downed for about 20 yards. I was inclined to askhim to give me a hand .I also dropped a button buck that Isaw trot by the woodlineas I was still draggingthis guy out, so I decided to take him on my antlerless tag and shot him at about 200 yards (a pretty good shotif I do say so myself). Anyway, it was a pretty good opening morning when all was said and done. Here is the pic, what do you all think he'll measure, 110" to 115"?

Nice deer but he looks a little thin.
At the time I shot him, I didn't have access to a camera and I wasn't about to drop him down off of thegambrel to get a pic. I decided I should just wait for the pic after I cut offhis head. He was probably about 225 lbs in the field....
