    Screenshot_20180729-181843_Video Player.jpg 3 DAYS! I ran out yesterday to put chairs in blind to have that done and make sure everything was good. Got rain coming a out everyday with mid 80's.

    Also, just curious what do you think he scores ? He steps out hes getting an arrow either way.

    Hard to say without several angles...I'm going to guess 150ish. I would definitely let the air out of em if he was on my radar.

    Quick question for everyone I’m thinking of switching broad heads I would like to get the 150 grain 3in swhacker or 125 grain spitfire doublecross I shot 125 grain swhacker last year but I’m looking for a bigger whole if I get the 150grain would I have to get heavier arrows

    Anymore pictures of him? Hard to tell if he is a mainframe 7 or 8, looks like a droplike kicker on its left side, would make up for the lack of a G3 if only a 7, definitely upper 140's either way and coyld get into the 150's, that mass will add up quick.

    Kill him and tell us, Captain's orders :lol:

    I think they would touch if they didn’t curve up at the end

    My guess is about 141” which would make him a brute of an eight pointer

    It takes a special kind of 8 to make 140, 150 would be hard pressed. Then again, I don't know how much additional mass velvet adds either.

    Seeing the additonal pics added above, I'll lower my score a bit to upper 130's maybe getting to mid 140's. That first pic was a bit deceptive.

    that's what i was thinking. upper 130's the kicker might put him in the 140's. I have seen one 4x4 shot that went over 140 and that thing went 170, but he had 10" brows, 12" g2s and g3s, 22" wide, 26" main beams and 6" bases.

    I'm no guru when trying to score a buck by any means, why I asked you fellas. I too think some pictures are deceptive. But make one thing clear, 150 or 120, if that buck walks out it is hopefully getting an arrow flung at it, ha!


    Unless possibly this guy shows up with him. Then I'm not sure. Hes a nine, maybe 10. Hes not been showing as much lately though. Probably go with him if he does. Your thoughts?

    I’d guess 130 on the first buck. That second buck looks better. It would be cool to shoot a nice 8 given our team name
