    Just got a trail cam and very excited about it. I have been hunting for 15 years and just started getting serious into bow hunting. Any idea on age and score?

    Nice buck! I'm guessing 4.5 yr old, probably net around 110-120" cause of his right g2 and g4. Might be a 140-150"+ next year if his right matches his left side better. :eek::

    I knew that one side with the short G2 would hurt him. Gets me excited though 2nd day of having the camera up he was on it plus a bunch of other young 6's and 8 pointers. Going this weekend should start getting good.

    Did he ask if he should shoot it or not?

    If it is a trophy to you kill it and be proud. I would :cheers:

    Its not about forum police.

    Its about being respectful. He said he was excited about getting a chance to kill that deer. It takes a little bit away when you see people post stuff like "let him grow".

    Its a legal deer and if he wants to kill it thats his right and choice and he should be proud of it.

    I wasn't being disrepectful, i was just giving my buddy a hard time. I would take that deer in a heart beat!! I am new to the site and I was just trying to have a little fun man!! I would never say that to someone i didn't know. Sorry to stir things up on the forum with only 4 posts!!

    Just curious how this whole scoring thing works. When I asked what this buck would score, I was told 115-120. Now this one is 130+? No way this is a bigger buck than the one I asked about.
