Kinda makes you wonder why everyone is so concerned with scoring? If it's not a state/national/world record, I'd say score doesn't matter one bit.
X2. We need a "What would he score" forum. Seems like everyone now is concerned on what a deer would score before they shoot them. There is an easy way to tell, put an arrow/bullet into him.

Another vote for 150's. Definitely a nice buck. HD.

Location would make it a lot easier to judge. The rack to body ratio is so much different from the south/midwest/north.

I'm in IL and if that is a IL buck I'd say 160 pretty easy.

I think that is why the guesses are always all over the place. They look a lot different in different regions.

He does look a bit younger - would love to see what he could be in a couple of years!

eh I rate them on what I think they will taste like, how many pounds of meat i'll get and how tender they are...I'd take a nice mature doe over a rutty buck any day...
