I dont think hes 4.5. but pics can be deceiving.. I dont think hes any older than 3.5.. Score wise, good beams, mass and tines. Short brows. Im saying mid to high 130's.

Here's the score and age. He was a 3.5 year old buck field dresses at 158 pounds and was a great looking buck. When we got pics of him I thought he was 130". And when I helped my buddy get him out I still thought mid 130's. well I was wrong.











You can see all the measurements and he's been scores twice and came up right about the same within 1" of each other

From B&C website. It's the same for P&Y

However, if you are scoring an 8-point rack, there is no G4! In this case, the H4 measurement must be taken from half-way between the G3 and the tip of the main. Simply measure the main beam from the center of the G3 to the tip of the beam, divide by 2, and mark the beam this distance from the end. Take your H4 circumference and your mass measurements for that side are completed.

Keep in mind that on a 9-point rack with 4 normal points on one side and 5 normal points on the other, the H4 on one side will be taken between the G3 and G4, but the H4 on the other side will be taken between the G3 and the tip of the beam. With an unmatched (unpaired) point, a sizeable deduction will likely be evident between the right H4 and left H4 (the G4 will be deducted from the net score as well). As I mentioned earlier, symmetry is good and asymmetry is bad when it comes to Boone and Crockett scores and white-tailed deer.

Good to know. I always used 3 circumference measurements on 8 points. Guess they all get a bump in score. LOL

Main beams are where I missed on this one, had them at 20-21 inches. Good 8 for sure, congrats!
You always get 4 circ measurements.
