I am terrible at scoring whitetail, not that the score really matters, but I am curious as to what you think this one might score.  I know he isn't huge.  His body is massive for whitetail in this area.  200+ lbs dressed easy I think.  This is my first big game kill for the year.  Biggest whitetail I have ever shot too.

Wow! Nice one. Is that out in the area where you're working? We may not have the monsters like they do in Saskatchewan but that is a good one in my book. I haven't the slightest idea how to score one but just know you'll get a lot of good eating out of that buck.

I shot this guy around Lewistown.  Up on the land of the outfitter I used to work for.  My dad and I go up there every year, usually doe hunting, but I have permission to shoot anything I have a tag for.  First time I have shot a buck.  There were three in the group, and one other one was as big as this one.  Sadly, I missed the shot on the black bear I saw up there.  He was really steep down hill, running from me, and I think I shot right over the top of him.  Oh well, next time.  I was a bit bummed about that till I saw this deer.  Had to take him in my mind.

Jon, we took a little 0000 steel wool to it.  Took the shine away.  I think it turned out great.

Wow! Very nice whitetail Helo!
 
My dad harvested a buck VERY similar to yours a few years back. His scored 126 although i think your buck has a slighly better spread, side to side.
 
I'd say roughly a 130 for your buck. Nice shooting, congrats Excellent

Well done Andrew.  Heavy bodied good looking buck and you can't eat antlers anyway.  Still a very good looking symmetrical rack.  Will look very nice on a wall.

Thats a really nice buck Helo, almost perfect in symmetry.  I'd also say he goes in the 130's and is a pretty decent trophy in my view.

Beautiful animal...  Bigger than almost anything around my area... there are a few near that size, but they are nocturnal and skittish.  Almost never see them.  Can sometimes capture one on a gamecam, but they are wise to those as well.  
Antler stew sucks...

Thanks for the kind words. I am still pumped about getting him.

He is the biggest whitetail I have shot and the biggest body I have shot. I think he may be bigger than any mule deer I have shot in the body department. He is bigger than usual for the area but they had a lot of good green grass for most of the summer, so that helped.
