Hey guys, how 'bout we start picture judging(guessing), some bucks with known scores(gross B&C), and weights(scale)???

Care to play?????

We'll see who can accurately guess weights and scores by looking at posted pictures.

I'll post score and weight on Monday.

Buck number 1.

This is a buck killed by my MOM, in Southern ILL.

Maybe LA Sportsman can keep track of who is the best Guesser, and give away a big Canadian Whitetail Hunt??? LOL. Just joking Andy

Drum roll, please ....
OK, I tallied the total score for the deer at 439.375 based on the deer's body weight (278 pounds) and B&C score (161 3/8).

Guesses were all over the place, and there were several that were pretty close. But when the dust settled, JB was the closest at an estimate of 182 5/8 inches and 260 pounds. That put his total at 442.625 - only 3.25 off the actual tally.

Congratulations, JB. I'll email you a $5 coupon code valid in our Outdoor Store soon, so be on the lookout for it.

A special thanks to passthru for putting this contest out there. And thanks to everyone who participated.

We'll be doing these kinds of contests periodically, so be sure and check the reports forums often.

Sounds like passthru is donating the hunt! Wow, that's a great Christmas present. LOL

I'm guessing the buck scores out at about 165. Definitely very wide, 'mev, but I'm not sure it reaches the 180s (a truly massive, massive amount of calcium).

Come on, guys! Throw in your guesses.
