    So first mass would be below the brow, correct?

    That is what I thought as soon as I saw it on Facebook. I couldn't tell from the original picture you posted here. That is a heck of a mass measurement going around that base though.

    You were correct, but I from what I saw of all of the other pics, including the ones from Facebook, there was no way to tell for sure. It wasn't until the close-up of the front clearly showed it branching off the beam that a determination could really be made.

    I had the same confusion until I saw the picture from the front as well.

    Look reasonable? Don't want to get accused of cheating because I certainly didn't think he was 130 and I have him in my hands :eek2:

    130 2/8" 23.75 inches on just the brow and first mass measurement :woot:

    That was the second time measuring with a rope tape. Everything was rounded down to the closest 1/4". First time I came up with 130 4/8 without rounding down, so it seems pretty close.

    And for context, I have a way of making things around me seem small :lol:

    Scoring rules follow the Pope and Young guidelines going 1/8" not 1/4." It may not seem like much, but it could add up to the difference of a couple of inches. Still a great buck though, congrats!
