    Tough to judge the inside spread, but IMO you're looking at a 4 or 5 year old buck that would score somewhere in the 150's. If you had a picture of him looking at or away from the camera it would be easier to judge.

    Could be 5.5 or 6.5yo.

    Hard to judge a score but I'd venture to guess in the 150-160 range. Post those other photos and we can better judge..

    a nice buck for sure but with short tines & not much mass i'd say he'd be lucky to make B&C. IMHO.

    I'm gonna say 143" gross, but net is gonna be significantly lower, looks to be a mature 5.5 yo or so deer. I don't think his inside spread is much over 18, but I used 18" for IS, and his beams though long looking, don't curl in like a lot of LONG beams do, I'm guessing 22" beams, based on those numbers, and 30" of mass, he's not quite gonna make 150, and he may not even end up grossing P&Y when all is done and over with, but irregardless, he's a GREAT buck that most guys here wouldn't hesitate to shoot!!! :tu:

    I think OHbowhnter is just about spot on. Net typical would make you sad, but like we say, nets are for fish! I say you put a tag on him and score him :)
