Default Any idea on score

Best deer I've got at my place this year. Not the widest I've seen, but the tallest and probably heaviest. Any idea what he'd score?

Not the best pic, but from what I can see he looks to have a pretty nice frame, good mainbeam length and mass. I would guess possiblyin the low to mid 130's gross.

Unless I am missing something, he is just a main frame 8 point, correct?

The pictures are terrible, but from what I can see, he "might" go 140. I really think 130-135 would be closer.

The pictures are terrible, but the best I have. I was really thinking somewhere in the 130-140 range, but maybe higher depending on junk. But then I sit here looking at a 139 inch 8 point on my wallI shot in the exact same spot (literally within a foot or two of the second picture) andthe deer in the pictureslooks a good bit bigger. Of course, some of that could be the camera blur.

Well, hopefully I'll give you guys a good answer soon. 4:16am here and I'm about to head out and see if he won't show up.

Well, got to my stand this morning about an hour before shooting light. Well, I thought I was there, kept looking, then saw the ladder sticking up in the air. Guess these Texas winds were strong in the last couple of days, because my 16ft tripod had blown over off the small mesquite it covers. Hunted a different spot, but didn't see a thing. Only stayed in the stand for about an hour as I needed to get back to the office for a late morning meeting and wanted to get the other stand back up.

Driving to the downed stand, chased up a big buck that I'm pretty sure was the one from the picture. With broom weed that is up to my chin, couldn't get much of a look at the buck. Just my luck!

No more pictures of him at the feeder, but glad he's still in the area. Makes me really look forward to this weekend.

Good Luck!, and if/when you get him, post some pics and what he scores. Want to see how close I guessed him.
