thanks guys,,,,i was thinkn he was about 160-170
for sure would be a case of ground shrinkage.

Oh gosh, like, ground shrinkage of about 30 inches. He's a 140" buck. Might go 145 inches, maybe, but I doubt it. No way he'll make 150 inches. Not enough length or girth, nor inside spread, to break 150".

That buck is over 140" IMO. I have several 140's on the wall, and that ain't no 140" buck. There's only about 1 1/2" separation at his bases (even though he's in velvet). That's a heavy ass buck. That buck is 150" plus. Inside spread will hurt him a little. That extra 1" kicker will put him over 150" though :love:. Also, you can absolutely not tell the age of that buck based off those pictures or probably any pictures provided. Actually aging deer by sending their teeth in will prove that to you in a heartbeat. You can tell if a buck is mature, but you can't tell how old it is. That's a shooter buck all day.

Use a hatchet and some bondo and he can be whatever you want him to be when you put him on the wall

They add inches astronomically after 5 years.

It's not uncommon for a Rocky Mountain mule deer buck on good winter range, to put on 60 inches of antler between age 4 and age 7.

He'll burst quite a bit between age 3 and age 5, but the real surge comes between age 5 and age 7.

He could potentially jump 30 inches in one year after age 5.

I would shoot him. If he is a Wyoming buck let him go, I am coming out next year and will let you know the score. 😉

I was at 160" but didn't want to get pooed on.
