The easiest way to score them is to shoot them first.

I was guessing around 165 but yes Stonewall I would rather have a tape measure out to find his real score.

Thanks for all your help!

I have one more that I will post for you and he is 5 inches past his ears. He is the widest one we have ever got on camera.
