Default Score Guess?

What do you think this guy will gross? I was thinking high 140s to low 150s. Maybe 151 gross?

mid to upper 130's, once the velvet comes off in a gross score is my guess

I think I'm giving him more beam length and spread.

I think he goes 150ish but is optically bigger than his score.

Edit: when I break it down I only come up with 130-140 inches but it doesn't matter....he is mature and looks great.

Oh yeah, he definitely has an impressive frame and a smaller buck could outscore him if he had more and longer tines. I think he'll have 1 and 2 inch G4s, which won't add up to much. And I think his brows are 4 inches, which aren't that impressive. But he's got an outstanding sillouette.

Why didn't I think of that????

I give him
3 inch brows = 6
10 inch G2s = 20
8 inch g3s = 16
1 inch g4s = 2
--------------------------
44

22 inch main beams = 44
22 inch inside spread = 22
16 inches of mass = 32
-------------------------------
98


98
44
-----
142


So I'd say 150 is not out of the question

Where we are differing is on the main beam length. I have a buck mounted with 23 and 25 inch main beams and this guy is better. I think he has 26 inch main beams.

Could be....the pressure is on you for us to find out.

Probably somewhere between your guess and mine

Scoring is definitely not my strength as I really don't care about somebody else's scoring system.

A mature deer you have been following around for years is valued way higher than any scoring system can show.

I killed one a couple years ago that was 144 inches, 9-10 years old and Ive never been happier with a deer and Ive killed some that were way bigger.

He was fixing to back out like we were talking about earlier when I got the shot off. He was much smarter than me in the woods but I outsmarted him 1 out of 100

Like Rock I've never been that proficient at "sight scoring" whitetail. I'm pretty dang good with Elk and very good with Moose but for some reason scoring a whitetail from pics and from distant spotting I just basically can get within 20 inches or so. Also scoring this early on eludes me because of the lack of rutted up neck and head. Their racks always look bigger before the rut because they are so scrawny in those areas. Wait a little longer when he starts looking more like a line backer on the Bronko's then you will have a better idea.
