yes, i scored it on the Boone and Crocket web sight at 114 6/8 but it has 7 4/8 of deductions so it came up to 107 2/8 after the deductions. 'I like the Buck Master scoring better' it came out to 117 5/8 on it...
Guess I did it right?
I sat down with a buddy of mine that has scored a few and measurered it. I didn't do it right the first time but not much of a diff.. The Gross is 117 6/8 but has 8 3/8 of deductions. So the Final Score is 109 3/8 B/C. Still a good one for me. I seen one 'BIGGER' than this one a few days before running a doe but couldn't get a shot on it. It was better that this one for sure. In this one spot that I have found me and little Larry has seen 8 diff rack bucks.
very good buck regardless,of score.i keep telling my sons that what a buck scores and what you think it will score are not necessarily,close.they have learned now since,i have put the tape to some of them.
yes, your right... the biggest body deer that i have taken is about 170. so this could have been a small 6pt and that would have been fine with me. don't know if i will ever take another one over 200??
Be sure you got all the credit for circ. scores as that is the most missed part of scoring for B&C. You get all of the circ. scores regardless if it is and 6, 8, or 10. People sometimes short change thereselves on that. I did for years.
your were right. i didn't take all of the circ... but it only added a few. Gross is now 120 4/8. but all of that don't matter. it's the body that has me... i did a skull mount and it came out ok. if he would have been wider i would have mounted him.
