Tough view to come up with estimates, but I'd guess it would gross somewhere between 135-140 pts. Guess the first point around 3.5", 11" for each of the next two and 18" for main beam(total 43.5). Mass estimate of 13.5" on each side brings total to 57. Duplicate for other side puts you at 114. Add 18" spread and you're at 132. Extra for the cheater (gross score only) and a fudge factor for my guess.

Regardless, it's a nice deer and you should be smiling. Congrats!!

I'm with Snake...but I'm going to shoot for the lower end and guess 130-135. It looks to be 20" across or better...
Congrats! A beautiful buck!!
