    Default Score him...

    Give your best guess what he scores. By far he appears.to be the best scoring buck I've ever gotten on camera.

    WOW....Great mass and insane brow tines. The best thing that could happen prior to harvesting that beast is that he will breed a trainload of receptive does. Having a gene pool like that on your lease is a 'gift that keeps on giving'
    Outstanding!!!!

    I think he is a "GC" Ground Check.....I kinda have to believe he has sewn a good many oats already and it wouldn't hurt for him not to be there anymore...he probably got that from his mom anyway and she has been cube steak and back strap long ago

    Yep, I believe most deer experts and research facilities claim that 55% of the genetics are passed down from the doe.

    As for the score, it's almost impossible to score a SC buck......especially one in velvet until the tape is actually put to the bone. The body sizes of our deer make the antlers appear larger than they usually measure; this one does have some helluva nice brow tines to go with those other points, but what's the inside spread? Supposedly if the outside of the rack is inside the ears, it's less than 16 inches.

    Larger deer make antlers look smaller. Cape out a Midwest buck and they seem to grow.

    I agree with 145. Mass and tine length will push the score on that buck.

    He is 130-135 as a normal 8 but with those brow tines he hits 140+. Velvet makes mass always hard to judge but those are thick thick bases

    I've got some hard horned pictures of him, I'll try to post them in a bit, but they are a little grainy. I'm guessing 145ish.
    Unfortunately he's completely nocturnal for now20170918_124513.jpg20170918_124130.jpg

    Edit, added photos. No clue why they are sideways

    Saw him once about 2 weeks ago as he was going to his bedroom. Got a glimpse of him for about 5 seconds and he was gone. I turned my head away at the wrong time.
    He's also been seen by 1 other club member.

    I checked my cameras yesterday and this buck is back in the same place doing the same thing. His frame looks smaller this year so far but he may fill out. I’ll post pics in late July or August when he gets grown. He does have 12 points currently.

    Yep, hopefully one of us gets him this year. He will be on here for sure if we do. As of now he is a main frame 8 with a kicker off one of his g2s and his right brow is split and his left brow has 2 kickers off of it.
