There has been loads of TALK about this buck and that scoring big numbers and hoping to kill this size buck or that age buck this season. BSK already did a GREAT thread on educating hunters on how to properly age a deer in the field.

So why not some examples (again?) on how to score a buck?

How about we post some mounted bucks with their ACTUAL GROSS score. NOT AN ESTIMATE...ONLY BUCKS THAT HAVE HAD AN ACTUAL TAPE PUT ON THEIR ANTLERS AND A SCORE SHEET.This eliminates field pics as they are kinda hard to get to hold still while you put a tape on them.

I suggest we put in a pic with GROSS score under it.

Go ahead...I can't wait to see some of these bucks. Also, ANY STATE.

BTW, could someone post an actual P/Y or B/C score sheet?

Alright,let's try this. Without the benefit of tape or antlers in hand...
What do you THINK this buck scores

BTW...there is a VERY good clue in this picture. EVERY deer has two.
Also, it is a main frame CLEAN ten point.

Can you blow it up a little bigger?

I'll go 134" but the pic is small. Need a front on view to better determine beams/mass/spread. Deer could be smaller framed than it looks or bigger. hard to tell.

My guess would be in 125 range. View can be deceiving

I'd take a guess at about 133 +/- an inch or so.

If you want this to be an informational thread, I'd vote to get rid of the guessing game. The score is going to end up on a different page as the photo potentially. I'd prefer to see just a picture(s) and the score.
