2 ways to score a real nice buck. First is just plain old luck. The second is alot of time scouting, watching, refining your plan, alot of time in the woods and being patient.

What would a deer like that be around? Water,good food sources and some good cover for bedding somewhere near the water and food.

Apparently instead of actually measuring, you post pictures on a forum and let other guess.
That seems to be the standard based on the number of "what does this one score threads".
I personally think a tape measure is a much more accurate method if someone cares to know.

Thanks for the links. I didn't know how you were supposed to measure them so I will have to try that out.

Usually most guys are fairly closed to the actual score.. Just figure out who is close and who throws out bogus figures.. like ed and i said it should be around 95-105
