164 5/8" very long brow's and g-2's, and 3's...... I saw a buck last year that got hit by a car, that looked very similar to this buck.... It ended up at 165". Good luck getting him !

Well for grins I actually did some "educated guessing" and came up with 150-155 gross. He does have really nice brows and I almost think "deceptively great" G2's because they look really long compared to shorter G3's and 4's.

End result, shoot him this year, he will likely push mid to upper 60's, and if I'm too conservative he will be Boone.

I would guess that deer right around 160" plus or minus 5"

I would guess he is at least 4 or 5yr old

I guessed him at 152". He's not very wide and isn't heavy in mass,the velvet adds alot. He looks 5.5 years old in the pic because of his body and still being in velvet looking like that with his rump narrow and deep chested. He has belly sag beyond being stuffed full of summer browse.

I am not trying to hijack your thread by any means but here's the same buck I pictured, except head on. In my opinion you can rarely get close to a score in velvet unless he is head on and somewhat close. Not even ear wide, nothing longer than 8 inches or so, he was 130 give or take a couple inches.

I came up with 129" with that pic.

this is tricky the bottom pic looks blown up to me so im going by the top pic which appears to be true in size and from what i know from the bottom pic, im saying low 140's but whatever the case i usually see a big jump in real life, in other words pics never do deer justice i have almost always found that a real sighting of a deer or dead ,the deer is bigger than the pic shows.

I agree 100% especially when looking at mass

I can't tell if he's a 9 or a 10, assuming he's a 10 i would say 155"...4.5 year old

The pictures make it look like 2 different deer becasue of the odd angle of the first pic, also the bottom pic looks blown up as Tim said.

If I were to score just from the top pic I would say upper 130's trail cam pics. are decieving because of the distance from the camera, bad angles, etc....... i don't think you can get an accurate score on any deer from a trail cam picture unless the deer is posed perfectly and the proper distance from the camera.
