and are we all assuming we aren't supposed to count the inches behind him? because then it's over 300" combined

I think the “173” average is real close. He has to break 170” but I don’t see him breaking 180. Gross of course.

This is a Great story! This buck showed up after I left. Dave Butler got him with a perfect double lung shot.

Dave is 85 years old and is still going strong with his compound.

I’m curious does Rob weigh the bucks? I’ve always been in awe of those brutes up there. It’s hard to judge the rack size when they are attached to a tank. Congrats to Dave !

Would be interesting to see the average score tally if we couldn't all see the running average from previous post...seeing that along with being able to see other guys scores could sway peoples opinions.

Pat, is the score you listed net, gross, NT or typical? I assumed you wanted net typical?

SBH from the guesses on this thread after the score was posted it would appear very few read the posts before guessing or commenting. The average probably does help some people. I usually just look at T Roy’s guess and guess 10” higher. He sees all those Iowa giants and normal deer look small to him. ;)

I just added up total gross. No side to side deducts. And added nt

From: SBH

Nick Muche is usually pretty dam close on these things. He posted first and I figured....well its probably within 10" of that which kinda swayed my opinion. I was leaning lower based on the first pics and though more like 162" but those later pics really show the size. Helluva deer. Fun to guess.
