    That is actually true on the "air" statement IMHO,..although I don't mind it being included. Other than that to me gross is all that matters and it is still a very flawed system. I've said on here before a massive heavy rack no where near gets the credit it should for the amount of bone it is packing. While not perfect a water displacement or weight method would still be more accurate.

    I saw a massive 8 point that use to hang in a little bait shop on 23 in Johnson co years ago. The mass was incredible.
    I’ve no doubt it scored 155”-160”

    I saw one hunting once that was unbelievable. I had already shot my buck for the year so I could only watch him through my scope at 50 yards. Easily 20+ “ spread. Incredible mass throughout his rack. All times were 10” or more. Easily 155 total inches.

    First deer I ever saw hunting as a kid was a big 8, in a cedar thicket cruising, I was so tore up I couldn’t even raise my rifle and when I did the scoop fogged from my breath, he just eased on by me slowly

    Yep ... was that Wayne’s Tackle Box? Pretty sure it would be and that buck was 163” I do believe. Jeff Preston (Game Warden) mounted it.

    I doubt it. It was in Crittenden county 7 years ago. He was a true specimen of a 8 ptr.

    That’s awsome. Yes it was! Wayne’s tackle box. I stopped there whenever I was in Paintsville (I lived in east point)
    I always thought that was a 160” deer.
    Thanks

    Don't have any big 8's on the wall. Seen a few,..already tagged out on bucks on 2 of them in years past. Was goin through my horn pile tonight and found this shed,..forgot I had it. A friend of mine gave it to me. Not a 160" er but a hoss. Has a kicker at the base but would be a basic 8 shed. Main beam is 28" longest tine is 11 3/8" ish. In the first pic on the shelf it is all the way on the right,...the other sheds on that shelf are pretty nice,...it compares well against them.
