    Thanks for the comments guys.

    I shot a ten pointer in the same location two years ago that had the same wide spread on less than heavy main beams with short G1 and G2 tines. The 10 point was 22 inches at the widest spread, this 8 was 23 1/2"....they could be brothers if a guy looked solely at the racks and body size. I'm at about 245 pounds right now and this deer was a handful, so was the 10, but the picture doesn't show the body well. I've shot a mess of 8 and 9 point deer with great heads off this hill over the last 20 years and I've shot some seriously messed up heads too. I shot one deer that was tooth-aged at 8 years old and if I can find that rack I'll get a picture to show what age does to a deer's ability to grow big horns in old age. The best is a 13 point with some antler mass that dressed at #238. I'm primarily a meat hunter to make sausage, but I tend to like the bucks for the body size...way more meat. Once in a while we see a real good sized doe. The one I got this year dressed between 110 and 120 pounds.
