That is a tough one! I would say 5.5 on the first one, then 6.5+ on the second (not sure if it is just his coat throwing me off). The second one has the characteristics of an older deer, but his back sure is straight (it may just be the gait position he was in during the pic though).

Good luck, hopefully some of the pros can give you some more insight

I'm 5 1/2 on both. That top one looks like a thoroughbred race horse!! What a stud. I'm horrible on score. Both P&Y's though.

That first one looks at least 5 to me, if not 6.

The second one looks 6.

Just looked on my computer screen. That first one could easily be 6, and the second one could be older than that.

Both score high enough to be on the hit list.

First Pic: Fully Mature IMO (at least 5), I think he'll go 143"

Second Pic: Fully Mature, hard to say on score because it's only a side view, but If he's as wide as he looks, I bet he goes 140.


Got any more pics of em?

You have some great looking deer for that area. Hunted there for many years and never saw any like that. However I think both are older than 5.5 and I wanna say the first one could go mid 150s and the second May get 140
