How old do you think he is?

He appears to be post mature to me but is one of those bucks that is hard to judge in some of the pics.

Who cares, just kill it. If his antlers are that inconsistent then give him a dirt nap

So cool! I have no self-confidence in ageing bucks in the summer, obviously not a youngster and I don't think ancient, but I'd have a hard time killing a deer that put on that much growth in 1 year while also being fuzzy on age. If he makes it to the end of October and you get more photos, I'm much more after they fill out.

I care lol that's why I'm asking, nothing wrong with wanting to get an idea of how old a buck is.

I shot a deer very similar to it last year and he went 157" and I was very tight with the tape.

Pretty pumped about this 8 that showed back up, hadn't seen him since early may. I think he is 5 based off previous years pics but could be 6.

Big 8 are my favorite, I passed him last year cause he didn't have the mass yet. He definitely added some this year.

Man it's awesome what a little age will do for some bucks. Lol I passed that buck in 2015 with my bow and figured him for a 3.5 yr old then.... also passed that first buck too and figured him for a 2.5 yr old in 15'. Good luck this year! Awesome bucks

Pretty low day light activity this card pull but he's looking good, hopefully when the velvet comes off he still looks this nice. The 8 is looking good too.

I could have shot him opening weekend last year but I didn't really want to even bother with him, then after that I didn't see him around till December and he had dropped one side. I half expected him to die with how he looked in December/January but he has been a chow hound on the protein ever since and rebounded quite well. I'd like to think the protein is what turned his health around since he's been eating 5-6 nights a week consistently since December but who knows.
