Score this BUCK
Awesome thanks guys..I'm hoping to post another picture of him with me in it soon
I'm with the dude, mid 140's plus (or minus) the trash. Nice buck that would get an arrow everyday.
No offense to the last two posters, but the truth lies somewhere in the middle. That looks to be a very nice 10 pt with some trash for fun. Quite a bit over 130" but I don't think that is a 160" class deer. As a typical 10, I'd say he is mid 140's. Very nice deer.
rikj, that’s an “Old Fashioned” buck.
Dude, it’s the Spoon and Crockpot Club. Lol
I like the water displacement scoring system and it has been talked about for 40 or so years. It seems like a great system for measuring mass not so good for thin horned wide spreads like Texas deer. When I think of heavy racks I think of upper Midwest and Canada. I deer hunted the far northwestern corner of Minnesota and our group shot some very heavy rack and bodied deer.
the_ dude I shot this one a few miles north of your place up north a few years ago, what would you score him at with your system?
I think the nicknames have to be all around volumes of water. Like a “paint can 8” or “ice cream pail 8.” See a nice one and its a “bait bucket 10.” The insanely large just get stupid exaggerated like “I saw a stock tank 10 with all kinds of kickers.” I mean, it is my club after all.
