I definately would have passed that deer up based on its age, and it is a little small for my liking. I would have let him grow to at least five and a half or so. JUST KIDDING!!!!!! I am not that crazy! That is an awesome deer and if it doesn't break the record because of deductions it would be a shame, to me character of a rack is just as important as everything else. Whoever decided that a rack that is not perfect gets downscored is an idiot! If you ask me the antlers should be scored on volume not inches. This could be done by simply submerging the rack in water and measuring the displacement, it would be much more accurate and would not discriminate against "Imperfect" antlers.
