He might be better than we think if he curls in significantly, based on the photo though I have a hard time stretching him past 13.5 or so, which is short. Might have 6 inch prongs and 6 inch bases, even with those generous measurments I have a hard time getting him much over 70 inches, I'm thinking right around 70. Could be borderline Pope and Young, minimum there is 67 inches. Would be a good archery trophy.

Here is a quartering shot that shows a slight inward curl. Still don't know how to rotate it. Thanks for all the replies so far.
Yep, I now think he'll pass 70" a little bit seeing as how I don't have to stand upside down to look at him any more, LOL!
DFG---That is a gorgeous buck and sure looks a lot better than barely making 70"!
A majority of guesses on goats tend to fall short of actual score (that's just my experience). It's just a number. However, Just based on the picture and scoring lots of goats, I'd give that one 11" horns. That's 22". I'd give him 3" of prong on each side, and 5" bases. I'd go 5 1/5" on the d2, and 3" and 2" on the d3 and 4 (generously). 22+6+10+11+6+4=59". You can call him 13 or 14" long if you want to, but I just don't see it. You can also inflate the mass a bit, but not by much. He may scoot toward 65", but there's just no getting that goat to 70". Kill him and prove me wrong!
I'm thinking around low to mid-60's, I'd take him as my first goat any day! Season starts tomorrow here for me and my first antelope tag! Woot woot!

I'm coming up with a 70-72" score based on this picture.
