I agree, between 110 and 115. He's got real potential though.

Without a good profile shot to see beam length I would say 120". Looks very similar to my biggest 119 7/8 net.

It would be lucky to make 115. The velvet makes it deceiving. 105 or so.

Flipping huge if it is in Arizona. I would say 115 is a good estimate. The body is twice the size of any animal here. Would be proud to have that animal if i were a trophy hunter.

Wow. I was suprised that most of you are guessing about the same as I would. Usually everyone is way over the top and calling any good eight or ten a 140 class deer.

My guess would be 105-110. If you want him good luck this fall.

The velvet can really throw you off. I agree with the posts in the 105-115 range. You can tell its a younger deer. The brisket is not pronounced, not much of a belly - and no roman nose yet.

Nice potential for sure.

I agree with Gissert in that it isn't a real old deer. However, I can't score it without knowing when the picture was taken. How much growing is left from when the picture was taken.

Assuming this picture is real recent then 115-120 is a good estimate once the velvet comes off.

Thanks for the replies! picksbigwagons, I stink at scoring too hence the post. I would have guessed about the same as you. The picture was from last week.

I got about 105 gross. I think he will net below 100.

Be good in a couple years..real goo. Appears about 2 1/2.

He's got a little growing to do, but my guess he'll end up about 123 4/8.

Here is a picture of my sons 10 pointer that he shot two years ago. It grossed 116 6/8 and netted 114 3/8. So my guess would be that right now it would gross around 100.

    •   All good things come to an end sometime. At some point we realized that the cabin that we always wanted just was not going to happen for us. So, for less then just the taxes and cost of up keep on a cabin we have a park model camper where we can have family and grand kids come up and go fishing any weekend we want. Plus lots to do around the Brainerd area if you don't want to sit in the camper on a rainy day. Last weekend we ran up to Walker to Reeds and pick a gal of Blue Berries on the way.
    • We had our permy site for 14 years. It was a blast the first 10. Neighbors changed, other things changed. We got tired of it and finally had enough. It was getting so with the yearly fee we felt we needed to be out there every weekend.   I still fish the lake in the fall but don't miss it. Now we can go to other places to do something different. With that said I'd do it all over again.    
    •   Well after inspecting, I'm really starting to lean that the blade mounts are bent. I can't find any pictures or anything......so I'm not sure. If these just take a normal shaver blade.....then they gotta be bent.....Anyone have any insite?
    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
