    It will score 141 4/8 if you double the smallest circumference that he listed and use it, as he missed one. I guessed 138. I was closest on the low side and JoeyM was closest on the high side. A lot of you guys were WAY off....back to school!LOL

    dewitt-I stumbled upon an excel spreadsheet one day with all the necessary measurements and is all formulas. You plug in the numbers and it adds it all up plus deductions and gives you the score at the bottom. Its pretty slick and handy. I tried to post it but you can't post excel piles apparently. If anybody else wants a copy let me know and I can email it to you or if someone knows how to post it let me know and I will post it. I was one that was WAY low!
  13. I would say in the 130's due to its overall size, 5X5,and its even.

    Just go to Boone and Crockett .com They have their score sheet there. You just plug in the numbers and it does all the math. You can then print off a copy. It is watermarked unofficial across it. I have done it for several customers. They love it when I hand it to them. I usually only do it on the larger bucks though

    I had forgot about this thread, LOL!!! I score a couple of hundred deer every year, but NEVER try to guess one. I took the inside spread measurement, and built the other numbers around it based on the mass of the antlers as they appeared in the photo. I wish I had kept my numbers, so I could tell how close I was on each tine and the circumferences.
