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

Roush_whitetail.jpg

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

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes. 
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell
