Default Something don't look right.



So it's just my opinion but something do look quite right about this picture. I saw it on Facebook earlier and just thought I'd share and see what y'all thought.

Not that a buck that looks this young (guessing 3 1/2) cant have a set of horns like that, I just think this one looks doctored a little. Just my opinion.

Looks like a beast of a mature 7 point to me. Maybe being run down is making him look funny.

You may be right. He could be just run way down.

I see what you mean now. This deer fooled me on the hoof. I thought he was 4 1/2 or so and he was way older. Like didn't have a tooth in his head.

I don't think he's young, I think he's run down from rutting. Ruffled hair on his neck looks like fighting caused it

Deer looks like a 4yr old but would not argue to much with a 5yr old at this time of the year.

Nice deer ran down after the rut. Among the hardest to age IMO. I would GUESS that he is 4.5-5.5 but need more pic's to have any level of real confidence.

5.5 yrs old, he has good muscle mass just lean from the rut. He doesn't look gnarly in the antlers so I think it throws off the look.

I seem to be the outside guy here, but I'd bet a paycheck that he's only 3.5 years old. No belly, brisket area hasn't dropped down, head still looks too slender to be a 5 or 5+ year old deer....

Not sure if we are in the same tax bracket or not ......... but I would bet my paycheck that he is older than 3.5

I would say between 4 and 5...and his pupils appear to be round, so I am going with Watersnake.

Look at the face on that guy, he's run down post rut. That's a 5.5+ deer easy. Notice the little sway in his back, but he's run down and thin.

Def not 3.5, back to main OP question yes antlers look doctored a bit if not completely photoshopped. Color/lighting looks off, but it could be real
