120-130....135 max! I really hope you killed him and know the answer!

To justify my scoring, nice and wide 18-20" now his downs short tines, he is a nine but I dont deduct, lil thin on the mass size. And Id say he's a 2.5 year old.

Hard to judge em lookin at a pic, Nice pics by the way.


Lil secrect on my scoring this one is, my 10 I killed last year very simular style rack and I know the score on it!

I thought he was at least 3.5 yr. I'll post another pic to show his body size.
No, I never shot him. I would've had to shoot over my right shoulder, and rotating in that stand wasn't too much of an option. He should've followed a trail behind me to offer a perfect shot over my left shoulder, but a storm came out of nowhere and the last picture of him looking at me was as far as he came.




I did get this one though:

I dont know where you are so couldnt give an opinion using body size he is a pretty good size deer! But if you look at the shape of his head still in the shape of a younger deer. Look at my 10 under "totally unbelievable" or under black powder more pics of him in there youll see how much longer and more developed his nose and head are.
He is a 3.5-4.5 my taxidermist forgot I wanted his jaw and when killed he had the lock-jaw so I didnt get to look.

Some good news for ya he'll be a fine deer next year and looks like you found a great place for a stand. Try practicing a lil left handed stand shooting its really not that hard whith a lil practice....I dare one come up behind and right, flip the gun and get him! Work on some camo around your stand get it so you can move for a shot if you need to. I dont know how close he is gettting to you but practice your shooting. That was a pretty open spot maybe a nice ground blind would be in order. Good luck! dream about him till you see hime again youll get your chance at him.
