How Close Did You Get on Buck’s Score?

OK, guys and gals: How close did you come?

I’m not saying that Brad and I are the end-all experts, but here’s what we guessed for a gross score on that big 10-pointer shown in a trail camera photo posted in my "Whitetail Wisdom" blog from earlier today:

My guess: 153 gross typical. Brad’s guess: 152 inches gross. We made these guesses without conferring with each other. My "guesstimates" for the buck’s gross score:

Brow tine: 4 inches
G-2: 7 inches
G-3: 9 inches
G-4: 7 inches
Main beam: 23 inches
Mass: 17 inches (5+4+4+4)

Subtotal = 66. Multiplied by two = 134   +   inside spread (19 inches)  = 153.

How does that compare with your guesses? Do you agree or disagree? Let the debate begin!
