with out tip to tip its 103 4\8 but im new to scoring deer, need to watch someone who knows what there doing but i gotta b close

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

Crossbows should be for the handicap only!

Sure, the rut is a GREAT time to hunt if you don't know what you're doing!

To one with faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible.

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!

HAHA I see and hear it all the time... you should see the pics I got last week from a KY hunter thought his deer would go 160! LOL
