    Hey folks, I’m gonna post this here also so more people see it.

    I’m human and I make mistakes. More than my fair share sometimes.

    If you notice something wrong with your entry on the scorecard contact me immediately. You’re not going to offend me or hurt my feelings.

    If your scorecard entry post shows ENTERED but it’s not showing up OR if a kill posted after yours is entered and yours isn’t entered let me know because I’ve probably screwed up somehow or missed it.

    That’s all. Now I need to put the phone away and watch for deer.

    Is anyone else not seeing 214”? I see the scoring breakdown and just don’t see it from the pics, but it just might be the angle. Heckuva deer for sure, just not sure 214”. Don’t want to be “that guy”. Just asking.

    The pictures don't do it justice! I measured him 3 times and was shocked. The first 2 measurements were even higher. I plan on getting a official score of him soon by a P&Y scorer. I'll re-post that score once I get it if needed.

    Bone, first congrats again brother!!!

    Also anyone questioning it, do one thing - take a pen and paper and just visualize measuring all the non-typical stuff. Those points coming off around bases (especially the rear ones) hide incredibly well in the photos. There is over 30 inches in just pure non-typical inches. Then factor in this buck has great mass throughout!!!! You get rid of the non-typical points, and shrink it down mass wise - same exact frame, just smaller mass and you quickly have a buck that is a 165 buck or so - STILL A STUD, but fellas this is an INCREDIBLE buck.

    Anyone else notice that most people seem to have bought their measuring tape at the same store this year?
    Can't think of any scores that jump out at me as obviously exaggerated. If anything a couple appear to be bigger than scored... @Ranbo's STUD being one. I would never have thought that thing was under 170. He could've written 180 and I would not have questioned it for a second.

    Tine length gets him. His frame is as impressive as @Bone Head Hunter 's honestly. The first year I can remember in a long time I didn't see any and was like dude you need to subtract minimum 5-10 inches.

    Agreed. I first saw BHH's on my phone so didn't truly appreciate it. I saw Ranbos on my laptop first and thought it might've been higher scoring. Then I saw BHH's follow up posts on the laptop and was like...whoa Nellie.

    I got to admit that I thought he was 170 to 180 with everything he had going on in the field.

    Once again... It shocked me when I added up the score the first time.
