He's a cool, old buck.  doesn't matter what it scores.  he's older than 3.5 and that's all that matters.  A buck could be 8.5 and 120, i'd still take an older deer over a 3.5 yr old stud in the 140's.  That's just me though.  I prefer age over rack size.

Great buck nonethless,  I'd put an arrow in em.

Hockeyguy,

Its tough to tell beam length from just one picture but I would put him at 135"

Glad to hear that! Plus mine was on public land with a mile and a half drag, rather than on his neighbor's deer paradise where it dropped dead on the trail so we didn't even have to drag it to the ATV lol.

hockey... you have bragging rights... what you loose in mass and spread, you gain in tine length and then some.   both cool bucks though.

Hockey, your buck has some good mass too. Obviously lesser than that of the other deer but not spindly by any means. Your brows are also quite bigger than average, which makes a big difference as those are usually only 3-4" measurements. I think your buck definitely scores higher than the other. Just my opinion.

Hasn't been scored yet, but I'm sure it will be. He is getting a shoulder mount at his wife's insistence (I think I married the wrong sister lol). Definitely his biggest, and among the biggest racks I've seen in person. Pics really don't do it justice. Not disputing the scores provided since they're all really close, but someone offered an opinion of near 140 for my buck from 2013, and his is wider with much more mass. Only thing I had going was tine length. Who knows...if I get mine scored too, maybe I will still have bragging rights lol

saw the first pic and I thought absolutely no tine length on the left side (128 score), then saw the other pics and saw there was some... 131?   20 inch beam, tines 3, 5, 2, 4. mass  5, 5, 5. 4.  53x2=106+19 3/4=  125?+more tine length on left side? 128 ...beams longer than 20? 131 ish...    Has it been measure yet??? curious what the actually score is..

like said below a dandy buck... but tine length is really where scoring is at if your into shooting score..   something to be said for shooting a unique deer like the one below though, trophy does not have to be score.

Great buck, for sure shooter and one to be proud of, but a score needs tine length, symmetry, and that buck is lacking both.  130's is right, but an impressive deer.

that's a sweet looking buck, Hockey.. obviously great mass but essentially no tine length.. assuming he's got about 5, 5-1/2" mass measurements around id throw 130 at him
