Didn't make the best shot on the deer. He laid there for 5 min and thought he was down for good.... i was wrong .... the neck shot was the 2nd shot after he got up and ran like all was good with him.... The bullet only traveled about 4" though his neck just under the skin. Had to track this one 400 yards and the last 100 with out blood, so glad it had rained the day before or it would have been much harder. This is the best deer to come from my wife's family farm to date. Any guesses on score........ Also shot a fat old doe about 15 min after i shot this one. was a good day saw 4 bucks and just 2 does ........ there on the move for sure. Good luck everyone, the rut is kicking in in west tn !!!!!! bout time \:\)

Well I had guessed 100 to 105, so I can definitely believe it. It takes a pretty good amont of bone to get to 120 to 125". Can't tell you the amount of times I've seen people say, yeah he killed a 120 and it really ends up around the 100 to 105" mark. None the less, great deer and congrats again!

BAM!!!! I was on the money i tried to tell whatthebuck that lol you more than likely scored it right

Fyi your measurements are as followed:

Circumference #1= smallest spot between browtine and burr
Circumference #2= smallest spot between G2 and browtine
Circumference #3= smallest spot between G3 and G2
Circumference #4= halfway between tip of antler and G3

Mainbeam measurements= from the burr to tip of antler meaaure the main beam by taking a string and staying on the outside of the beam and center of the beam

Inside spread= the widest spread between the inside left and inside right main beams making sure the measurement angle is 90* to skull centerline

and of course G2s, G3s, and browtine lenghts of each antler

When measuring tines you have to imagine the beam line running through your tine thats where you measure from...always measure outside of the tines

Hope this helps
