I'm gonna guess 142 gross on that deer.

Equals 63 per side. Times two is 126. Add a 16 inch inside spread and you get142".

Unless anyone wants to dispute any of myguessed measurements. He's pretty heavy and has nice long tines.

You did a heck of a job. I only wish I could get a big ol boy like yoursto come by my stand. I dont know if I could keep it together and make the shot, but you sure did. Great job.

I've seen Tim's deer up close and personal and measured the framework and 150 sounds right. The pictures doesn't do it justice and I guess only big bucks come from the midde west. Not. Great buck Tim.

Way to go Tim, that's a beauty. I'm 40 yrs. old, have hunted all my life in a state with very liberal seasons and bag limits so you can only imagine how many deer I've killed. I keep saying I'll get one mounted whenI get one big enough, but that hasn't happened yet, I have 2 that would go 115 to 120 that I killed when I was younger, but if i was to kill one like yours It would definitely go on the wall. There is a lot of truth to that saying that the average hunter will hunt a lifetime and may or may not get a trophy, so you have every right to be proud! Well done!
