    He would definitely "SCORE" a place on my wall!!!!!

    150's would be my guess.

    Wow, nice buck. Maybe I'm used to looking at Wisconsin deer, but honestly if I saw that buck without antlers I would say he's 2.5 years old. Will be interesting if you get a chance to see what he turns into.

    Looks like a nice surprise for the end of season. Good luck keeping him around.

    Not really good at score but I'd guess high 140's to low 150's

    He's probably 3.5 years, but can't tell without getting hands on him. Look at his pictures with the dink; notice how the dink's neck is not flushed with his brisket, they are 2 distinctly separated regions. However, the buck you're planning to chase has more of a continuos neck-to-brisket appearance. Another thing to think about is that the pic was taken in Feb (if the dates on your cam are correct) so he's lost a great amount of body weight during the rut, which will make him appear younger than he is. He has the early signs of a roman nose, and some good mass - I would put him in the 140's in that pic. He could EXPLODE this year, especially with proper nutrients. Also, it's very tough to score a deer in a picture; really need a shed since the angle and depth of an image can make a nice deer look huge (you'll see it and know what I mean when you see a pic of a hunter 10ft behind his buck, or an outstretched arm holding a fish) - I have been fooled many times by my own trailcam pictures, so I know how it goes. He's a great buck, though, I'm pulling for you to eventually post a picture crouching next to him, here on the site.

    *Depending on your preference, and the hunter density surrounding your farm, if you let him be another year he will be a MONSTER.
