    Maybe for the books, but most people I talk to want to know the gross score.

    I just hate it when someone brings me a big old mature 7 pt to score and when it only scores 108 they say I don't know what I'm doing. They don't understand that just because it has a lot of bone doesn't necessarily mean 150. The trophy is truly maturity. That's what ive noticed over the years but we all get caught up in numbers such as a high gross score.

    I don't care to know net, I'll give the animal credit for everything it grew.

    I agree nets are for fishing! I really didnt know much about score when I shot him and really didnt care. Still dont, I can field judge better now but it still comes down to if I like him I go try to get him! I killed him on block management on a general tag in eastern MT in the CMR area in 2006.

    I hear ya. The quality of the deer is all in the eye of the beholder. The score is just a quick judgement tool when sharing a story and a way for friendly competition between some hunters (some may not be so friendly competition).

    That is a good ol' buck and I would have felt the same way as you if I passed him up once. Good thing he was old and obese so he couldn't go far from where you first saw him.

    LOL I wouldnt say he was slow or obese, he was just a BIG deer! He was starting to rut and had about 20 does and a few small bucks with him.

    He's a bigger buck than the "net" score tells. I agree with packmule in that they should give credit for every inch they grow. Gross score is the way to truly gauge a deer. He is the exact kind of deer that I search for every hunt I take out west. Big frame mature buck. Great deer MM!

    Im going to measure him myself to practice and figure out his gross. Since I know his net I should be able to figure out how accurate I measured him.
