Close but don't think quite 160". Great deer but I'd guess him mid 150's Gross at best. The only thing that may be exceptional about him is the mass and that is hard to tell from these pics and with velvet on.

Let's do the math... Let's give him 18" of mass per side, 16" spread and 23" main beams. That gives him a 98" frame (which is probably generous). Now for tines let's say 4" G1's, 9" G2's, 11" G3's and G4's of 4" and 7". That's 59" of uptine.

That would put him at 157" Gross and I think that is a little on the generous side. So yeah I'm gonna guess 153" Gross and 148.5" Net typical.

Kill him and let's see if I'm close!

Define close.
I generously kept coming up with 151. Guessing you are just more generous...

Got a 10pt a few years ago with my bow real similar to that expect my g4s was a little longer. It green scored 156 then after dry it was 153 3/8. Just me is close I think on his guess.
