    Prongs are short but as you say, he has great curl. I'll say 71.5.

    Antelope are very deceiving to judge and add to that the fact the pictures are very deceiving also. That buck has decent mass and a very good hook. Mass has a tendency to hide cutter. I'd say that buck could go 75" or so easy. The hook is easy to miss if a guy is looking for height alone and cutter length is also easy to miss if the buck has better than average mass. But, pictures are hard to judge by, especially when the hunter is not in them! I'd say you killed a nice buck, even nicer to take with a muzz.

    Yeah, pictures are not very good. I tried to do a selfie, but my arms weren't long enough. I was by myself, it was just a "run out quick on opening day and see what I can see" deal. He measured about 15 on one side and 14 3/4 on the other. Cutters only about 4 1/2, and about 6 1/4 on the bases. Pretty good mass up on top. I really thought he was about 13 at first and even when I first put the tape on it really surprised me as it went around the curl. I will get it checked out when he comes back, I have never mounted anything before. It would be kind of cool if he was more than 75 so he made the Idaho book.

    With the measurements you mentioned he may break 70" and is probably about what I guessed. To be in the mid 70s or better he needs better than 7" bases, cutters above 6", and a second circumference of 6" or better. The lengths on him are good, but mass is where an antelope scores well and from what you're saying he lacks the mass to be much over 70". He's a nice goat and should make a beautiful mount.

    I'm going to agree with the 74" gross score.

    I guess I need to pay attention to the second page of the posts, as I didn't realize you had already given the score. My bad.

    No, no official or even unofficial yet. When I get him back I might have somebody do it. I just measured length and the bases, and estimated the prong. I think your 74 might be pretty close.

    Pic's must be deceiving, because he looks bigger then 15" I will go out on a limb and say 77 just so he makes it with ease. Pretty Buck no matter what!!!! One of the best looking animals to have on the wall no matter what!!!!
