    Thanks everyone for the guesses and kind words, certainly no offense taken for any estimates (Drhorsepower). I had initially thought 69-71", but that's probably because I've handled the buck in real life.

    Keep the guesses coming and I'll update everyone in a few weeks.
    My biggest fear in life, is that when I die my wife will sell all my guns for what I told her I paid for them.

    67 1/8 hard to judge at that angle so I'm probably not giving it enough credit.

    The photo angles are difficult but I come up with 72 1/8 before deductions. Final score will be 68 and change.

    It's somewhere over 60 and under 80.

    I think Musket is damn close at 70 ! I will take a 15 1/2 incher with great mass over a skinny 16 or 17 inch buck. These critters a so much fun to hunt!!

    Agree with assessment I would maybe lower it to 65" though. Tough to guess with those pictures being at steep angles.

    I'll go with 71", if I'm over, it might explain that ground shrinkage problem that keeps happening when I shoot one

    From what I can tell he will go better than what people are thinking not terribly great length but great mass and prong length I would put him between 74 to 76 but is hard to gauge from the pictures.

    Somehow I missed this guessing game and that's exactly what these types of threads are when you're just looking at at basicly one picture that can't tell the whole story. The field photo angle makes the buck look pretty small score-wise. However, the mount showing the real nice cutters above the ear tips and what looks like good mass all the way up would make me agree that he's in the low 70s and maybe a little better. The four mass measurements and cutters are what make a goat score well, not the length of the horns. Regardless of score, that's a nice buck and a very pretty mount.
