What’s This Whitetail Score?

I finally shot a big whitetail deer last fall and that head is at the taxidermist right now. A pile of summer sausage, hot sausage, snack sticks and backstrap is in my freezer.

I know a lot of you double up and spend some time in the field chasing deer and other creatures, along with your fishing.  I’m not a big score guy, instead basing the interest and worth of an animal on the experience of the hunt. This was a great hunt with friends, including my father, and I’m getting the head mounted to remind me of those times, not necessarily because it’s freakin’ giant.

But I am curious about what this rack might score. Would love to hear your guesses. It has not been officially scored and it has now gone past the 60-day drying time. This guy doesn’t make Boone and Crocket, that’s for sure, but it’s a great one. Tell me what you think and I’ll announce what it scores as soon as I get it back from the taxidermist.

Might as well guess what the winterkill scores, too.

    First of all congratulations on a nice buck. My guess on the winter kill is 129 and your buck 157, both guesses on gross scores.

    Congratulations, nice buck. Appreciate your attitude also. My guess is 161 for your deer, 126 for the winter kill.
