What will he score?

Finally got a pic. of a decent buck, this morning at 9:20. Kind of a game I guess, just wondering what you all think he may score? I guess for the answer I have to shoot him. If I do I will post it and see how good you guys and gals are at picture measuring.

Sorry I thought the picture was gonna be a little bigger! The left side has 6 points, three right at the end. I will see if I can blow the picture up a little.

It is a little harder with the smaller pic but I would guess in the 120's somewhere. Might be a little bigger or smaller, this is a tough one. Sometimes its nice to see the full body size, he could be bigger then he looks.

i'll guess gross 125 and net in the high teens. since his ears are pinned back, the outside of his rack looks like it would be between his ears so i'll even guess him to be 2.5 years old. i wouldn't lose sleep at not getting a crack at him this year,just hope no one else gets him. with six points on his left side he's gonna be nice in the next year or two.

I usually guess on the high side, but I think that deer would get lucky to gross 130. Probably in the 115 to 125. I have always been told that it takes a seriously nice 8 to score 130. That guy, isn't quite there yet.

I cant figure out how to blow this picture up yet, having trouble with my photobucket acct. However I can blow it up on my computer, so me and a buddy each did a quick tally and and both came up with a gross of 130-135. I know it will not net that cause of the extra tines so Im gonna need more pictures for a more accurate count or a dead deer. Hopefully I get to see him in real life so I can get a better look. If I get more pictures or a better picture I will post it.

2nd pic helps, probably still mid to upper 120's. Go get him and find out for sure, but hey if you don't he will be a beast next year.

He will for sure be a dandy next year. The only problem is the amount of gun hunters in that patch of woods. Makes it hard to let him go and have one of them shoot him.

I hear you, once they reach this age (guessing 3.5) they are much harder to kill so if you don't connect this year a lot of times these big guys find a way to survive.

I'm going to guess he'll gross at ~125" and net around 110". He lacks a little length in his tine and beams to make book, but he would be hard to pass up with a bow.

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.

      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.
    • MikeG3Boat
      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.

      Those are some fine specimens. Great job
    • gimruis
      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"   
    • Brianf.
      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!
