The closest guess so far is off by roughly 15 inches.

My guess is 154 gross. I don't see it being as high as previous guess but i really dont know how to adjust for the incredible mass it has.

All you have to do is dig up the hole that they plant me in. That's where it will be. Try not to disturb the worms as they are feeding though.

The quilt stand. NE corner of the property. I am sure for a Model 70 Super Grade or Two Logan will show you the way and even help you dig me up.

It reminded me a lot of one that I have at home with double "whistlers" and great mass on the tines. It is not nearly as cool as yours but I find it interesting. Yours would look nice next to it.

Any way you look at it, this rack of antlers is a unique trophy with it's incredible mass.

Lots of side to side deductions and subtraction of abnormal points to arrive at it's NET Score.

It was no doubt carried by a brute of a northern boreal forest whitetail.

It's what Alberta outfitters would refer to as a "Gagger" or a "Klunker".

It proves my earlier point in the "Security camera buck" thread that people tend

to over estimate the score of a rack by a lot.

I'll freely admit that I was so overwhelmed by the mass of this rack

that my mind couldn't compute a coherent score so I didn't venture a guess.

I know I'd go to into instant hyper-ventilation if I saw that rack coming at me in the woods. laugh

Walleyed I have slept since then but I thought your biggest peave was the AGE of the deer not the score of the antlers.( "security camera buck") Correct me if I'm wrong but you thought that deer was 2 1/2 . That was what some said you were wrong about.. Could have been another "expert" on here as they are several of us reading this LOL.....

Yes beautiful rack. But after people see what a deer really scores they realize it takes a BIG deer to surpass the 140 inch mark.

You are wrong this time, jbyrd63.

I said it didn't score in at 160" Net, and that It wasn't a old deer.

You thought It was older than I did.

We still don't know whose right as nobody has the deer's rack in their hands to score it yet.

Here's hoping snowy performs a mercy killing and we get that old geezer ("security camera buck")

on a scale, and a tape on his antlers, and we might as well get a wildlife biologist

to age his jawbone by tooth wear so we can put the mystery to rest. laugh

BTW, don't you have some BIG 10 Fans to torment ? laugh laugh laugh
