I mean with the THREE buck limit and all!

Agreed! I know that if I do my part, then I will have opportunities for a good deer or three every year even on public land. I also know what to expect in the areas that I hunt and base what I consider a "shooter" on that.

Some people say that their terms of a shooter has to be 125", 130", etc plus to shoot. I have hunted for 20 years and have killed only two deer 125" plus. However, I have killed a bunch of deer that were 3.5 plus. Most of these had 90 - 100" racks. There are some areas that the 125" plus etc is doable, but in mine, it is not realistic to hold out for. However, I know that and am content. I have also seen these same people that will only shoot a 130" deer turn inside out when they see a 100" plus deer. A lot of people don't know just what it takes for a deer to reach 130". I think that this may be 102's point to start this thread in the first place just to see what it takes for a deer to score such and such. I know that in my area, a 130" plus is a giant and something special to kill.

Just my $.02 worth.

SPOT ON LARRY...you (and several others on Tndeer, obviously "get it")

I wish I could report on the bull hockey being spewed on TV every time some personality is holding a set of 120 inch antlers and reporting it as a 140. I see this so often on TV and video that I now just grin.

If we on Tndeer (especially in these posted pics) had their tape
measure to score our deer, we would all be stacking on "180's".

I would put MOST successful Tndeer hunters, (especially the SE area hunters), against ANY Mid-western deer hunters ANY TIME. I am CERTAIN they would out hunt most of them 2-1.

Here's a mature TN buck.
What do you think he'll "score"?

Wes,

131 3/8's gross by looking at the first pic. But boy, that second pic makes him look much smaller than that, imo!

By looking at the second pic only, I'd say he would be considerably smaller than my "guess"

GROSS...about 130.
He will net low but who cares.

He is a fine buck.

Looks like he may have had a left side injury at some time.
