Be interesting to see if he remains an 8 over the years. Keep us updated as he matures into that magic 7.5 yr old age. He would be this year's target if he wandered onto our place. Those tall tines would be hard to pass on.

Yes, same deer, look at the shape of the brow tines, also, he carried that scar over from last year, you can still see it on his left hip.

Man that deer looks big. I think he could be older than 6 by the resent pic. Definitely something to hunt for this year. Would be a cool mount in velvet.

I could agree with the 4.5, but I donít think he is 5.5, as of last year. I just never saw 4.5 last year from him after multiple sits.

Updated picture. Looks like the drop might be forming on the end of his right beam. This buck amazes me on how much more growth he has compared to our other bucks on the place.

Nice, in for the progress.

Obviously you know your deer better than I do, but I think in the first pic he is definitely 4.5. Even looks like he already has callous' on his knees already, which on our place you never seen until at least 4.5/5.5.

But then again what the heck do I know, I'm just a redneck who likes to sit in the brush with a gun or pointy stick.

Nice buck and that last pic sure indicates a mature head... big white circles around the eyes, mature pedicles, deep jaw line... Like posted, you know your deer better than any of us, but from the pics I see, I wouldn't be surprised if he's 6+ now.

I will try and update weekly as I can. I think there is a high probability he is 5 this year, but I spent a lot of time watching him on the hoof and could argue that he is only going to be 4. This is a pic from last year. None the less, we are gonna give him 2 more years. Name:  IMG_0276.jpg

Definitely can see this being the same deer.

Also, think he will push out a G4 on his right side at least.

Look at the white strip across his forehead, makes me believe this is the same deer, even though he was a 10pt 2 yrs ago. In person last year he had a distinct white strip across his head, I called him nevado.

Yeah, as much as I prefer low fence hunting, this is under high fence, born on the olace, straight native and high intense management.

Man thatís a beautiful 8 pt, Iíve shot a lot of deer/animals, my only dream is to shoot a huge main frame 8pt, 140+ and I will be happy, unfortunately, this buck looks like he will not be that deer.
