New buck on camera today. Not biggest buck we go on camera but kind of cool 8 pointer. Be interested in your guys guesses on age and score. Don't recognize him from any pics last year. [Linked Image]

I'll go first and say 150ish based of the big 8 pointer I shot last year that was 143. I'm saying he's just 2 1/2 years old.

He is .270 Win sized and if it's cold leave him hang a few days and he will be aged.

Do I win some kinda prize?

Much easier to be sure, when he is dead.

Good looking buck.

I think he's definitely bigger than my 143 inch deer last year and from my experience I'd be really surprised if he's older than 3.5. I guessed him at 2.5 because around here he seems pretty light in mass for a 3.5 year old deer but I've been wrong before.

Upper 120's to low 130's. Just a guess based on a 160 inch 4x4 I shot several years ago.

Short main beams, narrowish spread, moderate average time length, short brow tines, non-impressive mass, only eight points, back and belly are a straight line.
Young deer, likely 2 1/2, and I would be surprised if it would measure as much as 130.

Those main beams aren't that short.

They reach out past the end of his nose, looks like.
