Default Score Guess (Pics)

Here are a few angles. Watched this buck for 4 years. He was an 8 the first year, an 8 the second, a 10 pointer last year and a 9 this year. I think he's 5.5yo.

We talking gross or net? Y guesses are all gross.

Having tons of pics of him over the last 4 years, I would say these pics may not do him justice. I've seen him in person spotting as well. The lowest I can come, with rounding down and conservative guesses would be 151 gross.

MB - 26, MB -26
G1 - 4, G1 - 3
G2 - 11, G2 - 10
G3 - 9. G3 - 8
G4 - 0, G4 - 2

H1 - 4.5, H1 - 4.5
H2 - 4, H2 - 4
H3 - 3.5, H3 - 3.5
H4 - 3, H4 - 3

And 22 inch inside spread.

Although, I think his mainbeams might be more like 27 inches, G2s are more like 12-13 on the left side and the mass be be an inch better on each side. Gauging his ear spread over hundreds of pics, I think he's got an outside of 26 inches, so 23.5 for spread credit is what I'm thinking.

My guess would be 150 at the lowest and 162 at the highest. Probably end up somewhere in the middle. These are gross scores.

They eventually slip up for my neighbor. Two brothers. Between the two of them, they have taken my target buck several years now. They don't bow hunt either. Just rifle. And they only still hunt. Never sit in a stand at all. Just walk around all day. Don't know how they do it.
