    I thought it would be fun to have a chance to test you guys on a picture that I have. This came from the neighbors who got the picture last year, and the buck was shot and teeth were aged so both score and age are known. Ill let you guys guess for a while then Ill post the answers.

    Goodluck!

    Everyone is guessing pretty close together, no one wants to go out on a limb and say 170 or 120? Personally i think its about 210" ;)

    All of you guys are pretty close, he is a 4.5 year old buck and I scored him at 154". What you can't see in this picture is that he has great brows. Its always fun to to see what they score after getting a picture of them!

    Great thing is the neighbors had been watching him for three years, we saw him twice on accident at our pheasant hunting land and decided to wing it by sitting in chairs in the grass next to the corn.. one thing led to about four more and then shwack. I think the neighbors are a little jealous but were really nice about it
