People throw around numbers like it’s no big deal. Like a 125” deer is small and just an every day occurrence. Most people won’t shoot a 125” much less a 140”-150” in their lifetime. I realize their are some areas that crank out deer this size but to the average Joe without access to great private land, a 125” deer is a huge accomplishment. My 8 pt this year scored over 140” which I couldn’t believe. I had him pegged at about 130”-135” on camera. The mass was something I was just not anticipating until I walked up on him after I shot him. I knew it was a heavy deer, but not as heavy as he ended up being with nearly 40” of total mass. What it all boils down to is a lot of people feeling the need to keep up with the guys and gals on TV when that just isn’t realistic and throwing around numbers like 150” like it’s no big deal. That is a huge deer! Just be happy with what you shoot and own it, whether it’s a basket six or a giant. Score is just a number and if that’s all that someone is worried about, why are you hunting?
