    It is nearly impossible to come up with a estimate from a photo, but I would say scored as a typical with deductions, somewhere around 130 ! Nice buck though 6p, congrats.

        He looks much bigger now.
        I'd say 145.

          My first thought is 135.

            6PHunter, Beautiful Buck, Congrats. ?
            I watched guides and outfitters score deer and those three extra smaller sticker points could remove points from your score.
            It happen to my younger brother with his giant mule deer. He scored higher with non-typical (no deductions) over typical.
            No disrespect but since it's an eight point buck with the typical scoring, I will pick 126.

                  Nice buck and good set of horns - no broken tips.

                  My deer only has 2 ears.

                    Like most deer I,ve taken I had never seen it previously ,through observing his scrapes and multiple rubs I suspected a good deer was in the area. When the opportunity arose and he appeared there was only the decision to shoot or not as he was following a doe to another destination. So I had no idea exactly how he scored,but his mass caused the trigger squeeze. He gross scored 142 by a young man that wished to sharpen his skills at scoring,and didn't,t come up with a net score ,but I,m sure would have suffered drastically from side to side symmetry deductions. So once again this proves that the panel of those here that judged an opinion can be trusted to give advice from knowledge and experienced gained. Thank You.

                      Jimbo - You right click on the picture and a menu opens up. Left click to save it to "My pictures."
                      Close out and open up "My pictures."
                      Find the photo now in your files and left click on it.
                      A menu will open up at the top left of your screen which includes the option "Edit, organize or share." Click on it.
                      A new menu appears, with options at the top left including "Rotate left" or "Rotate right." Choose the one that will straighten the picture and click on it.
                      The photo in your "My pictures" file will now be straight and you can post it in the usual way.

                        I have a very nice four point on the wall in the basement rec room that I shot in northern Idaho back in 1985. I never did get it scored. After this thread I'm guessing it must score a lot higher than I earlier estimated. Not many deductions and fairly heavy mass. Any guesses who's in the photo below the horns?

                          I'd say the guy in the photo was in the MP's.

                            Nice Idaho buck there Honker. High brow tines and a nice spread.

                            I hunted Idaho with a friend and we flew into Missoula. The Head Guide picked us up at the airport and drove to a Missoula base camp. Next morning, we took 4 wheel drive trucks in the dark to the trail head. Rode in on horseback for eleven hours to a spike camp with tents. Four hunters, two guides and one camp cook. My friend took a 4 by 4 bull elk and I took a 5 by 5 whitetail. The two other hunters shot nothing.

                            Coming back to camp, with our guide in eight inches of snow we spotted cougar tracks that was following us in. I think the cougar took advantage of the easy walking with our matted down snow from our tracks we made earlier?
                            The Guide said the cat was stalking us from behind. Who Knows?
