Post-mature Grandpa needs a ride home on ice.

He's got old man ear wrinkles, bony legs and hips and looks like he doesn't have the strength to chase (much less mount) a doe.

Very cool now and then, you posted this buck on here back then right?

Just looking at his eyes and face you can tell he is ancient like an old dog.

I'm saying 4 or 5 in 2012 so around 9 now my guess. Have you had any pics last few years?

I have no doubt that you know your deer herd better than any of us, however, just from looking at those pictures, I'm not convinced it is the same deer. The reason I wonder is that all of a sudden, now he has really long brow tines where he didn't before. Also, look at how this year his right beam curves in a lot more than in the past. Just a thought, but I'm no expert.

Maybe you can get some changes at his offspring since he had been around for so long spreading his genes.

I would be curios to know your ďtellĒ. Iím horrible other than looking at horns to tell if itís the same deer. Without out any history and a couple pics he would be a little tricky. A ton of old man features with a 3 year old body. I had seen all of the previous pics over the years so i had a pretty good idea of who it was. So question is would you shoot him if you saw him? Not sure where your other buck came from.

If post #33 shows him in 2012, he's lucky to still be with us.

At this point he might taste like leather.

Its cool seeing them get that old. I was fortunate enough to kill a 10 year old buck last year that I have sheds and tc pics from 2012 on as well. We estimated he stayed within 10-12'' each year until I killed him.

at this point I'd let him live out his life. he escaped you for however many years, and I don't see him doing much breeding.
