Default Help "rough" scoring my buck!

This is my buck from last year. I just was wondering what you guys think it might score. I never scored it before sending it off to the taxidermist. In some pics it looks bigger than others so I'm having a hard time with it. Its a 10 pointer and it weighed 168 lbs. This buck is considered huge for my area of Maine. I know compared buck from the mid-west its nothing special but for around here it is haha. I wanna guess about 130"-135" but I think I'm being too optimistic. Any input is welcome! Thanks!

Would push him to make 120. Lack of mass hurts him, but good buck.

Real nice Buck. Why dont you just measure him. Use the link in the contest rules thread to get the scoring form. Really not that hard. I agree with others on here that it's a real nice Buck, bet he looks good on the wall.

I get him back on October 30th, the day I shot it on last year, so I can't score him until then. But thanks, its being mounted on a Mckenzie 64d Aggressive form with the head down to really bring out the antlers.
