Saw this guy out last night while scouting. Anybody want to take a crack at guessing the score?

Low-mid 160s. I always seem to judge northern deer low.

I would say easily in the 150's. Maybe 165 or so at the most would be my guess. Shoot the damn thing in September and let us know!

Low 170's is what I would guess. Get him killed in Sept and let us know.

He's pretty wide...162 3/8

I think the previous posters are all in the ballpark. I would guess low to mid 160's.

I'm not sure he is quite that big, I'm going 150-155". He is pretty wide but doesn't appear extremely heavy or tall. Width only adds up once, mass and height every time. He carries his height pretty well but I don't think he has any tine over 10". His main beams are long with the width and curve upward at the tips, and his brows are really good. Hard to tell from the video and not getting a clear look at the other side. It takes a heck of a deer to make the 160's I just don't think he is there.

Looks like 145-150 to me. Still a very nice deer.

I also agree with the last two posts. He's nice and wide, but not enough tine length or mass to score what the first few posters are saying. That said, he's a good buck and I'd shoot him in a heartbeat!

I would go low to mid 150's as well. That makes me miss Iowa! Good luck on the hunt.

He has good width, and decent mass. He's a little short on the tine length though. I'd put him in the high 150's, assuming 5 inch 1's, and 8-10 inch 2's, 3's and 4's.

A nice buck for sure. I'd stick him on opening day!

i WOULD SAY 145-155

156 net. Very symmetrical yet the velvet always deceiving.

high 150s, he has good main beams,brow tines,and good G4s

140ish, not much more than that. There's a 146 and a 148 looking at me from the wall as I type this and he's not there. Better give him another year.
