I wouldn't be concerned myself about what he scores. Its a very nice buck. Not a book buck but a nice one just the same. People get too wrapped up in scores instead of just being happy with the animal and meat. :twocents:

 :yeah: that is a stud buck

Pretty animal.  But as for score, I'd guess 100-105. I'm basing that off all the Sitka Blacktails I've seen entered in the big buck contest in Kodiak when I lived there. Your buck looks very similar to a lot of the big three points I've seen there. The tines need to be longer to hit 110.  At the time I lived in Kodiak, the Sitka record was 118 and change and it took a nice 4x4 to hit 112 - 115 net.

Thanks everyone for the input and all. And trust me, at the end of the day I couldn't give half an Inslee about score. Haha, it's all just for kicks for me in that regard. I am just so giddy about this buck in general that I caved and wanted to get some more opinions for my curiosity. I am so beyond happy with this deer. I have a pretty simple "bucket list" when it comes to hunting for my life. 1 respectable buck whitetail and muley. 1 exceptional blacktail cause they are the main obsession in the hunting world. And 1 respectable bull elk (currently at the taxi from the 2019 season).  And this buck for me goes miles beyond what I would have counted towards my bucket list haha.

So I got him back. Posted as another thread with pictures.
I measured him out a few times and give or take a few eighths I come up with about 125" gross and 120" net.
Since the sportsman's show seems to be happening this year, I am curious about taking it in to the head & horns booth or whatever to have them score it.
Anyone done that? Do I just stroll through the door with it in hand and take it to the booth or do I have to do something else?
Dont know if I will. Just thought it would be cool.

Nice buck!  I was going to guess 114

Yeah Ive done it a few times all you have to do is take it into the show and go to the s scorers table and you fill out a page with some info like name, date of kill, unit ect... 

The you leave it and they used to give you a pass to get back in to pick it up. Not sure if they still do that or not.
