I too cant see the picts.. but for reference.. it usually take a pretty darn good 8 point buck to make Pope... It either has to have a lot of mass and a decent spread or tall tines.. 125 inches is quite a bit.. or a decent 10 point should make it.

I think you would be surprised at what makes a Pope & Young deer.

Here are a couple that have qualified:

This deer had 8 points and went into the books at 140 3/8

Another 8 Point P&Y 138 2/8

Zirkle_whitetail.jpg

Just made it....128 4/8

Peperis_whitetail.jpg

125 2/8

Novak_whitetail.jpg

So now lets see your deer and compare wink.gif

Although 10 points are ideal and will really help get you in these 8's are just fine grin.gif

I am chasing a 10 on my land right now that my taxidermy buddy estimates at 140. I am sure many can agree when I say scoring a deer from a picture can be tricky but a trained eye can usually get pretty close. I don't have a trained eye by any means that is why I send all my pics to my buddy!

Thanks for the post luc--- its best to look at deer picts and know the score... But you can see all those deer I would call above average 8's... they either have mass or tine length... I however wouldnt have guess that top pict to score that high... awesome deer!!!! Those G3's are way way way impressive! Hence probably where it gets its score.! Do you happen to know inside spread on that top deer?

I was surprised by that one as well! I do not know the spread. I just found these as good true verified examples from the P&Y site. Thought it would help to actually see some racks with some numbers. It is very tough for me to gauge....I just see antlers smirk.gif When other people look they see numbers. Wouldn't it be so cool to get a P& Y buck! Hanging on the wall with a ribbon! I bet you or I would be telling that story until the day we died! grin.gif I know I would!

Not sure If I can do this but here is a score sheet to get a more of an idea of what we are looking for:

Pics can be decieving, I didn't think that the buck I shot would score 168. He is a nice buck, but the pictures don't do his mass justice. Judging by the pics of my deer, I would say that he was a 140-150 class buck, we measured twice and added them up three times, he scored 168 every time. The big deciever is mass and main beam length. Its hard to tell main beam length and mass from a pic. Most people will tell you that a 25+ main beam length will get you in, mine was only 22 in. His mass was horizonatal, not vertical, so in the pics, he doesn't look that massive but he really is. At any rate, still all nice deer. I suppose you could practice your lasso skills, rope them, score them, then go get em. grin.gif

      1-2" in most lakes under 100 acres with moderate depth in the north metro. Smaller lakes likely have more.    Fingers crossed the snow misses us

      Went out with my poker this morning and checked ice at Johanna. The entire lake is finally locked up and there is about an inch of ice at the end of the dock. Hopefully the snow misses us this morning and we start to build some quality ice.

      I checked numerous Aitken area lakes yesterday, 9th. The only lake where I saw any open water remaining was Cedar south of Aitken.  Ripple, Dam, Clear, Hanging Kettle, Sissabagama, Anne, Rabbit, all locked up. 2" in most places, but after last night I'm sure it added more. I would guess in the next couple days there will be walk-out traffic. There were 6 porty's on  Shakopee yesterday, and although I did not check the ice, I'd assume there is decent ice there. There were houses out there already Wed.   Be safe, use caution and common sense, and do lots of checking.

      Ice Report: Pearl Lake 4 1/2 inches on shore line. 5 inches out a couple hundred feet. 1 guy out fishing way out there.  Grand Lake 2 inches about 10 ft out from public access.

      Well from what I saw yesterday I could wet a line thru the ice today I think knot. im going to give it a week for myself personaly. but on my way to work at 3pm yesterday I looked over at the lake I mentioned was iced over since Wed. and seen two groups of 2 out in the middle of the lake ice shelters and all and 2 of them weren't that far from the aerator out there.  I just hope everyone had a good and safe day out there and no one found anything out the hard way. At best that lake caped off Tuesday night. But I predict by next weekend there will be many places to ice fish and some evan before.  Three hard strikes with the Spud Bar followed by the foot
