first thought was old but his snout is smooth and not rounded and his brisket isnt well defined.. I'd say 3.5.. but if he is better that what u have seen then drop him

In my area that would be a 4 year old deer and I'd like to give him one more year but I suspect in my area that someone else won't have as much patience.

Straight belly, neck almost flows into chest, shoulders and hips about the same size, and his rectangular shape tells me 4.5/5.5. I age deer every week on QDMA's newsletter and most of the time I'm right with the majority, but the 4.5/5.5 give me the most trouble. Different locales will lead you astray also. Regardless, where I hunt, I would take him.

At least a 5 yr old from what I am seeing. Belly and good brisket.

Mid 120s

I actually came up with 124"

This guy is somewhat tricky. I see a defined brisket and a deep chest cavity which indicates to me he is an older buck,but I don’t see any tarsal staining or excessive callouses on his front elbows. I say 4.5-5.5 -125”

I’m with the 5.5 crowd, but that’s one of those bucks that may be prettier than what it scores.

Thanks for all the replies. I really need to see this deer in person to get a better look at him. He just showed up recently.

If he makes your heart pound when he walks out then take him.

That's what it's all about when it comes down to it.....

Unless your breeding for pencil horned bucks. I think he's a mature buck that probably should be better than what he is for his age.

I really canít tell how old he is.
I would watch him a while which means he would get a pass.

But I am looking for another particular deer!
