Default How long are these spikes ? Anyone wanna take a guess ?

We started calling this buck the "Antenna Buck" LOL
This is the tallest spike I have ever seen around here. But thats not saying too much as Ive only seen 8-10 in my lifetime around here.
Anybody want to guess on the length ?

I say around 8 or 9 inchs.
You could call him the Energizer Bunny Buck. lol
Thats what I thought of when I looked at the photos.
He will be a Bigen when he grows up.
