Practice field scoring deer with game camera pictures

Unread postby Dhurtubise » Wed Oct 08, 2014 3:33 am

I came upon this last year. Since I have seen quite a few posts of people asking for scoring estimates, I thought this would be a useful exercise.

Field Score Whitetails has a game where you have to guess scores based on various trail camera pictures. You estimate the score of the deer, then the actual score is displayed in the next window. It keeps a running average by how much you are wrong.

I scored 11.5" off on average. See by how much you can beat this newbie.

I'm just over 10" avg. Gave myself 5 seconds or less to judge. The really big ones threw me off since I guessed way under on many of them. One guess was 156" and it ended up being 200" :shock:

Anything over 170" gets much harder to judge at a quick glance. I just call them BIG. ;)

That's pretty fun. My average error was 9, but I really screwed up on the big ones. Of course when I see them in the stand, my margin of error at least doubles...
