    [QUOTE=packmule;85669]There are worse ways to kill time during the offseason. I was over 10" off on my initial gut feeling about him, body size threw me for a loop. QUOTE]

    My initial impression was high 170's. Say 179ish. However, after digesting comments, especially ones from Packmule himself, I have revised my estimate as follows: 1) body must have turned out smaller than estimated when alive; 2) main beams and inside spread appear to be in the vicinity of 20". These two factors could diminish original estimate by 10-inches. My revised estimate is 169".

    But what if his body was actually bigger than initial assumption and it's throwing off mass, spread and beams?

    Then I think you might be looking at a solid mid and maybe upper 180's!

    I guess 169. Nice Buck, his body is huge making the antlers look smaller.

    Well whats the official score?
    "Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I fee. One is the colors that fly high and proud The red, the white, the blue. The other one's got a rattlesnake With a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave. Because this is me. I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."

    Not sure on official dry score. Went 191 the week of his photo session though. Deceptive deer, thought he was big bodied but didn't think that big. Found another one his size (body-wise) a cpl years later and it was the heaviest horned 2pt I'd ever laid eyes on.
