so this is my 8 from last year (okay it is a 9 point small point of g2) grossed 141.  g2's were 10 inches.  so I say 151 on the mystery 8 point score.  But I bet if I was holding it in the trail cam pic it would not look so big.  good luck all tomorrow.

Big 8's must make me crazy.  I went back an looked again, and I'm starting to move my estimate down.  If the distance between ear tips is 16" like they always say, I get like 11" G2's.  I drink...

Apparently I'm the Grinch in the bunch. I'm seeing 5 1/2'' brows, and 10'' G-2's.

I agree, it is fun to go back and forth.  You and I are usually very close on our estimates from pictures, so it is always fun when there is one we seemingly see so differently.  I do think you are short on those G2's.  I may be a bit generous, but I'd be shocked if they aren't north of 12" each.

This is one I really hope gets settled!

I do remember many year's ago on here, I guessed on one that the guy ended up getting during the gun season and he IM'd me.  I was stupid close, like within a couple inches on a 160's buck.  

And two years ago my buddy shot a great 10 point with the bow.  A group of guys with hands on the buck sent me one crappy picture.  I did some quick calc's and said congratulations on a 150's class buck.  The immediate response was "we are all thinking 140."  I green scored him a week later at 153 1/8 gross and 149 3/8 net.  

I love it when I can get that close off a picture!

I'd bet those 2's are 11-12 inches.  I do like your mass, spead is close, and MB,  but i think your estimate on tines is where your are off.  i'm not seeing a 8 inch brow.  maybe a 7 and 6.  

It's fun to bicker back n forth a bit.  maybe we'll find out. 

Regardless what this buck scores,  the reality is,  an 8pt that makes 125 is a world class buck.

It's not hard for me to imagine that deer going into the 160"s.

What if his spread is 18".  What if MB's are 22.5 - 23 each?  What if his G2's are 16", which I think they could be.  What if the G3's are 11" and 10"?  All of a sudden, you are at something like:  18+22.5+22.5+8+7+16+16+11+10+34 = 165".  I don't really think he is quite that big, but I do know that is a massive 8 pt and I think the mass he holds through his tines (knife blade G2's) actually makes him look shorter than he is, which is hard to imagine on a buck this tall.  

I leave it at this:  I won't be surprised if he grosses anywhere from 145" - 165".  I think deer with MB's that swoop up like this deer's are the most difficult deer to guess score on.

Closest without going over gross score:  I'll take 156".


Spread = 17

MB's = 21

G1= 8 + 7

G2 = 15 + 15

G3 = 10 + 9

Mass = 34

That would be 157", but I don't want to go over!
