    I'm no expert, but I don't think either one will make 140. I would have thought your outfitter would have said if they were shooters or not. :noidea:

    If your outfitter sent you these pics I would think that he thinks that this deer is 140 or better. But I would ask him first.

    Outfitter!

    He said heres some pic's of some of the bucks i caught own two of my trail cams.
    I just got off the phone with him asking him this same question!
    He said they are close the one in the first pic i can take if i get a chance!
    He said he really needs to catch them on the cams in a few weeks in daylight when they loose the velvet, and that if the buck i take is 8 or better and atleast 16 inches wide there wont be a problem or charge!
    Im pumped!:biggrin1:

    its hard to tell w/ the velvit. I'd say in the 130" class. I shot a 134" 2 years ago and he's close to that one. In length of G2's and main beam length. The one thing that will hurt that bucks score is the small browtines. But as long as he carries the mass after he sheads. He will be a wopper.
    Now that top buck has to be every bit of 140". And then some. I'd say easily 142"s. Real tall an wide and carries a ton of mass all the way through his main beams.

    I'm not an expert at scoring, I never much worried about it, but one of my friends just scored an 8 pt he killed last year, it is real close to the top pic, his only scored in the 120's. Velvet is deceiving though, good luck with the hunt, hope you bag a big one.

    I don't know if either of them will make 140"? The buck in the bottom pic looks fairly old, at least 4 1/2. I always look at their chest just below their neck, and older buck has a more pronounced brisket. It's hard to say, I would think the 9 or 10 in the top picture would score better, longer main beams and longer tines. Good luck, i've got some real nice bucks on my trail cams but they are all nocturnal
