Default I'm going to go ahead and get my "age guess" thread out of the way

Caught this pic the other day - good buck that made it. The way he is hunched, hard to tell much about body, but all in all, I just cannot make him an old deer at all.

Even a little bit.

What say the GS?



-PS - thanks for letting me get my age guess post out of the way early.

4-5 is my guess also. This is a REALLY hard time of year to get an accurate guess on age. Middle aged is about as good a guess as I can give.

this is indeed a tough one. anyone that says they are not focusing on the horns to help get to 5+ is flat out lying.

I say 6.5+.

Tough to guess an age on one picture.

Yep. Picture does throw me off because of how he's standing - and it's the only pic I got in the first round with him in it.


Llano Co. is where our place is, with W portion in Mason Co.

Just based off that one pic I'd have a hard time putting that deer over 4.5. That is a very tuff to age from and I wouldn't anything on it. You can't any of the body features I look for from that angle.

I'll check cams again this weekend and if he has antlers still, I'll see if a better angle is available.

Very hard to tell. He is very run down

4.5 at least but 5.5 is a safe bet with that tarsal staining
