My first of hopefully many Pope & Youngs. None will ever mean this much! Any body an official B n C scorer out there wanna help me make this buck official?

    Great buck, beautiful mount and a few reasons to go back!
    DYING for me was the most HE could do. LIVING for HIM is the least I can do

    135 gross is me guess.

    I agree that a story is in order. Sounds like it was a special hunt.

    I had him scored at the taxidermist by an official SCI scorer. His number was 144 1/8.... but i understand SCI doesnt count deductions. So 135" is probably real close. I have ZERO interest in bragging about the SCI score but he was a frequent patron of this specific taxidermist so I asked him to take a look.

    The main thing ya cant tell from the photos is that his neck (at the base) measured 48" around. It was the biggest Mckenzie mold available in whitetail. To me, a florida hunter from birth, his body size excited me just as much as his antlers.
