    170 - 175"

    Father in law has one very similar that goes 170" on the nose.

    I read an article once about sight scoring typicals. add up the tines and add between 90-100 for frame.

    G1 - 5x2
    G2 - 12x2
    G3 - 10x2
    G4 - 6x2
    G5 - 2
    frame - 100
    168 gross

    he might be a little longer but most of the time we "see" more length than reality

    great buck !!

    I usually go by the corner of eye to tip of nose is 7.5 to 8 in on most bucks and judge off of that. But thats a very quick way to get very close i believe!

    It's a quick method of estimating when your sight judging deer on the hoof from a blind or treestand.

    Can’t tell how wide he is, but I’m guessing 163-168.

    He’s over 170”. For sure IMO. If he hit 180” i would not be surprised. Smoker!

    My guess is 176. On truly big deer I guess best on main beams and then try and get the time length best I think. I always use 16” on each side for mass just as an average measurements then throw your spread in.

    Right or wrong that’s how I go about it.

    Solid mid 160's, Doesn't look to have a ton of mass, not super wide, and his main beams are not super long.
    Fantastic deer and if he slipped into the low 170s i wouldn't be surprised

    Hell of a buck but the shrink from losing velvet is big. I'd save your score guess till he sheds and you get a pic. Definitely a sweaty palm buck though!!

    Mid 170s i'd say. Got super height and main beams I think are deceptively long. Lacking a little on mass but either way an awesome buck.
