I like the way the rack looks!! Not that I am complaining at all but I have only killed typical deer. I had a chance last year at a deer that had points all over his head because he did not give me a shot. Guy next to me killed him. 13 points only a mainframe 6. I want a buck with a bunch of character points.

Well a few guesses so I'll give the final stats. On a gross basis Carmaster was pretty close. The final is 143 1/8. (I had previously posted 143 7/8 but I was not too careful in getting proper circumference measurements for the H scores).

It does have a lot of dedcutions as noted so the official B&C scores are 137 6/8 gross typical with 8 1/8 deductions for 129 5/8. Add the drop and you get a 135 2/8 non typical net score.

If he was a clean typical without the messed up right side he would have scored right around his gross non-typical at 143.

We figured he was around 5 1/2 from the jawbone recovered so might have gotten a bit bigger.

I watched that rack for 15 minutes slowly working it's way towards me last year. he never presented anything better than a neck shot and that was with a fogged scope and buck fever setting in. I decided not to shoot so as not to hurt him and chase him another day. Sucks the car was not so forgiving.

Nice lookin buck. I'd go with the 140ish score. Who cares about deductions? Deductions were created for the "Book" guys anyway. Total inches of antler is all I care about. It's what mamma gave him.
