And where did they get that data? Totally bogus.

Excellent thread!

I believe a high percentage of the "over-estimating" is done on top-antlered 2 1/2-yr-old bucks. Because their skeletal system is not fully grown, their body weights small compared to a 4 1/2 or older buck, the same 100-scoring antlers on a 2 1/2 will appear much larger than when sitting atop a 4 1/2. And to a lesser extent, this also happens with the above average 3 1/2's.

Totally agree
