Nice one but honestly that looks bigger than a 157 gross, it looks closer to a 165 net

I rough scored this deer but will be taking it to the Illinois deer and turkey classic in March to get an official score. I came up with 165 7/8 gross and 157 2/8 net, sorry for the error in the original post. The deer was aged by the taxidermist at 4.5 years.
