A spinoff of the 700 Club. Lots of us are never going to be in the 700 Club for a variety of reasons. #1 reason is that we may have never seen a(or very few) 140" buck alive in person or on camera in the area that we hunt.

Rules:
Michigan fair-chase bucks only.
Legally taken.
5 bucks score added together.
Gross score.......standard B&C scoring. CBM is B&C scoring.
If your bucks haven't been scored by CBM, put a tape to them yourself.
You can be in both clubs. Example: Your 5 best--611 3/8. Your 5 best bow--569 2/8. Your 5 best gun--587 7/8.
Another example: Your 5 best SLP bucks--657 6/8. Your 5 best NLP bucks--547 1/8. Your 5 best UP bucks 501 0/8.
And another: Your 5 best private land bucks--607 3/8. Your 5 best public land--561 5/8.

I can make 500 with my 5 best NLP bucks for sure. I can’t get to 600”, biggest obstacle is a historical lack of 10 points. I’ve got a 118” nine, followed by 9, 8, 8 and 8 that score between 105-110”. Sum is 548”.

The buck that would score the highest is a mid-120’s ten point. However, he doesn’t count, 3 points were broken off and the rack was restored.

Getting to 575 in your area might be the equivalent to getting to 700 in the SLP south of Lansing.

How does B&C scoring work on a spike? Do I not get any mass measurements? Trying to figure out if my 5 biggest spikes make the 500 mark
Joking aside, yes you would still get the 4 mass measurements. In this case, all the same number. Maybe a 100 Club for spikes only ?

My top 5 are ~620" and I have 5 with a bow over 600" but I'm young enough that I will continue to wait for the 700" club. I do appreciate the attempt to draw in a bunch of deer porn though....
I’m at or about 620 also Ieats. There’s no way I’m posting them here though. If your not first your last. Lol

I'm with you Shrooms...just over 640" for me, 660" if including out of state. All the Michigan bucks are SLP, so I'll hang in the back of the room until hitting 700" as well.

Most of us 500 - 600 guys you will have to teach how to measure. I've seen the charts before, but never paid attention, and wouldn't know where to find one.

It’s true, I would have to get very lucky and tag at least one generational buck to push 600. 140-150 bucks have obviously existed, they’re just so rare. I’ve probably seen one in 35 years of hunting the NLP. Opening day 2000 at 7:30 am running very fast. No idea how many points and such, but there was a lot of bone. I’ve often wondered if it was an escapee from a high fence operation. About that same timeframe a guy took an escaped buck about 5 miles down the road.
