I hope you get him! That one may very well be 7.5 or 8.5. If you do be sure and get the jaw bone, and that'll help you get a closer estimate.

After several years of chasing the old guy I finally got him. 5 inch bases, rough score at 121. We have 4 years of him as an 8pt. I am guessing 6.5. Pulled the jawbone and will report back

We didn't have a scale (CensoredCensoredCensoredCensoredit). Most guessed between 225 and 250

Great old deer. Will be interesting to hear the age. All I know he was "mature". Id like to hear the weight also if you weighed him.
