Do you have a picture of him with hard antlers? It's always hard for me to judge them in summer velvet.

Old. 6.5+

Loose skin on face/jaw

Swollen front knee joints.

Time of the year the picture was taken will make him look younger than he actually is.

Only picture I've gotten of him. I agree it is the hardest time of the year for me to judge as well. Either way he is probably safe. Won't make the cut for what we are allotted unless it gets down to the last weekend and we have tags left.

Lol we are all over the place on him. Hopefully I'll get a picture of him later in the year. I think he also has a little kicker/drop coming off his right base.

when do you rut over there? If not till after velvet then for sure mature due to still having stained hocks. that is another identification I look at.

How did I miss this thread a month ago when it began? Big 6s, 7s, and 8s are among my favorite. Have you been seeing him consistently over the last couple years? I know it sounds cliché, but I'd like to see him again next year out of curiosity. That being said, an LDP would suit me fine as well.

Second year on lease and sure don't remember him from last year. He probably won't get shot for reasons mentioned above. Should be but probably won't be.

I always get a good laugh at all the 3.5 yr old guesses from summer time pics. Most folks only look at a couple of characteristics and those are present in the summer time. Shoot him or let him walk....one deer doesnt make or break a management plan.
