Default Age

This is the widest deer I've ever seen at one of my personal set ups, so I'm have a hard time getting past the width to age him. Sorry for the poor pictures. My video camera died about the time he came in.

Really tough to age at that distance. But I'll guess 4 or 5

I've got some better video of him. As soon as I can I'll post it. One day I'll learn to not video every deer that walks by and save the battery for the good ones.

I'm with RMW it's tough when there out there on pics but I'm gonna go with 4. He seems to have about the same amount of body as he does legs and the rest you just can't tell !

I would call him a 5 or older from those pics. Lot of brisket and has the hump on top of his shoulders(could be the way he is standing).

5 or 6. Short legs, full deep body, neck blends in to brisket nicely, straight thick back. He will look his true age with his winter hair.

I see 4 but not 5. But I'm really not good at aging them this time of year

I'd call him a 4yo without having any history with him and give him another year personally

That's the problem, this is only the 2year to hunt the place so I don't have history with any of them. Almost frustrating.

I only have 2 and he is standing way back right at daylight. All you can see is the width of his antlers. Lol. As I was going through pictures it was one of those "wow what was that???" Back button!!!!

A little bit of a sway in his back, sagging belly, full brisket, neck coming out of the brisket, Roman nose, mature-looking face, dished V between the pedacles, skin not sagging much under his jaw yet..... I'd say 5.

I know it's early but I think if he gives me a bow shot I'll take him for sure no matter how old. But he was very skittish at the pen Saturday. In fact never did get in it. So that may be harder than I think. I did have a really pretty 10pointer who loved the pen. In fact I was ready for him to leave Sunday morning, he spent so much time there.
