Default Help me estimate deer score

Here is a couple pictures I pulled off one of my cameras the other day, I know they're not the best pictures for size estimation and I'm horrible at guessing this stuff. For eastern Oklahoma he qualifies as a good deer. I can't wait for October 1st to get here. I hunted him hard last year but he stayed almost completely nocturnal. Last year I thought he was dead after he disappeared from my camera for about 2 weeks last fall so I tagged out with an average 8 & 7 point, only for him to reappear a few days later. I have pictures of him within days of loosing his rack this last winter. He was a nice 12 last year and is bigger bodied and has a little more mass and height to his rack this year. If any of you are any good at estimating what a deer will score I'd love your input!

it doesn't matter WHAT that "toadious maximous" scores, a deer like that get's NAILED ON SIGHT unless you are in very very few, extremely rare locations & purposefully awaiting something 180+.

I've gotta 154", 13.5" wide 14pt (mainframe 6x6 + matching kickers on each G-2) and that buck in your pic will DWARF my 14ptr. I'm usually conservative & I typically ONLY guestimate gross, especially on 150+s. I would guess that buck around 165-170?

Congrats, hope you get him!

Wow, now THAT is a dandy! He is for sure 170 no doubt. I would guess closer to 175-180. Man, what a toad! Good luck. Pretty sure I would miss like Elmer Fudd if I seen that thing.

We have a few 170's hanging on the wall but heavier. Yours should be around low 180's!!

That's an amazing looking buck!

May the rut be with you.

That think it a freak! and he looks almost perfectly typical. I would say he would be close to 180 as well depending on the mass. Good luck!

I've gotta 154", 13.5" wide
13.5 inches wide? That's a yearling 6-pointer. This guys going 19-20", inside.
