probably 80" or so...if he a nice one for your area shoot him!

Those shots from behind always make them look bigger.

As others have already stated, you have to take into account the region you're hunting. For Mass that is a good buck, now if you were hunting Iowa, not so much. You can't hunt/kill what's not there. Although, if you know there are bigger deer in the area, it certainly makes it a lot easier to pass smaller deer.

A fully mature Mass deer could have a 100" inch rack but be just as smart and hard to kill as a Midwest deer of the same age with a 150" rack. The only difference being genetics and access to quality food that the Midwest deer would have.
