Please clarify "first time hunter" in your thread. Are you a whitetail hunter that is going on your first MD hunt? Or are you a first YEAR hunter? .
If you are a first year hunter, you shouldn't shoot that buck. Shoot something much smaller and give me the coordinates of that buck.
That is a great deer for a general unit and you would be hard pressed to find anyone that would pass him up on a gen tag.
As for score: I'd put him in the 'wide enough, tall enough' category!
