Default Deer cam rack size guestimation- Scoring vets please help

Hey I just got this deer on my cam in the last week. We were guessing and hoping it was a 130 class. This is a Central Alabama Blackbelt Whitetail photo taken on 12/28/10. Please tell me what you think it will score and most importantly his approximate age. I tried to post pictures, if it doesnt work I included a link. Thanks

Poll: Should I shank him, rank it 1-10.

The thing that will hurt his score most is low spread... especially tip to tip. I am horrible at estimating score but I honestly doubt he will score 130 inches.

If I saw him I'd shoot him though ;]

I live in central Alabama Also. This deer will never make 130 class, id be suprised if he makes 120. I have a few on the wall that look as good or better that only go from 110- 120

Yes, low spread will hurt. But... "tip to tip" score doesn't count for anything anyway. I'd guess he's around 113-118.

Dang guys, some of these scores are really high. From the pictures this deer looks like he would only score around 100 inches.

He is a nice looking deer. I would guess 110-115 and maybe a 3 1/2 old. You will know a 130's 8 pointer when you see one. However, score isn't everything and if he's a deer you wouldn't mind putting your tag on take him if you get the chance. Like I said he is a nice deer. Good luck!!!
