Yeah i would have said the 175 was way high. I would think this buck would be in the 145 155 range.

I think a lot of people forget how big a 170+ deer actually is. I here this number a lot no deer that are actually 130-150. This is a nice deer but I don't think its 170 inches.

Here is another one we have on camera. Sorry for the bad pic. I took a picture of it when I had my memory card in the TV. That is the flash above his shoulder. I will try to get a better picture of him with an arrow stuck in him. LOL

145 - 150. Maybe 155 due to the symmetry, he wont lose much.
