opinion on this buck.

I was lucky enough to draw my first antelope tag this year for the Utah archery hunt. This is the best buck Ive seen so far and am looking to get some more opinions on him. After comparing him with other bucks with known scores I think he should make pope & young. Any opinions on his score would be appreciated. Thanks

He is a good buck but it is

He is a good buck but it is hard to tell by just those photos of him. At least until he is on the ground.

What unit did you draw?

Pretty sure

I would bet he makes P&Y pretty easy. Good luck and I hope we see him next to you in the next photo. They sure are fun to hunt and are beautiful in my book!!!

update

For anyone who was interested I finally stuck this buck after 12 days of hunting him. He measured green at 70 3/8 and with the deductions for his weaker left side he came out to 69 even. hopefully he doesn't dry to bad and he'll stay above that magic 67 to make pope and young.

Here he is

Well here he is. Sorry the pic isn't good put my hunting partner had to leave the night before I got him so I was alone so excuse the gut pile in the backeound. And a quick correction on the score. I missed a mass measurement so he'll probably dry at about 73".
