Default 1 1/2 or 2 1/2?

Here's a buck that I videoed two years ago. He was in front of me for several days and it was hard to not call him 1 1/2. Without the horns, it would be easy. His name is FYB, if you wonder if he has a name. LOL Is he the same age as Lucky?

He's a real wimp this year. Valhalla 10 just looks at him and he pees on himself. It'll be hard to not shoot him next year. If he's 2 1/2 in these pics, he'll be 5 1/2 next year and that's our normal target age.

I'd say 2.5 also. Legs still don't seem skinny enough to be 1.5

Give 2.5 again, because that means he'll be 5.5 next year, and I can get after him...

He's very probably 2 1/2 in these pics. If so, he and Lucky are the same age and both will be 5 1/2 next year if they can avoid getting poached. He may keep the others occupied while I kill Lucky. He has the potential to be our next Pretty Boy. Only problem is that he doesn't look 4 1/2 this year and he definately doesn't act like it. I'm sorry, but after everything that's happened the last year and a half, I'm afraid to post his pic. Maybe after the season. I had him from 8 to 15 yards and got a lot of video of him. He'll get your blood stirring.

Doc,
This one's got too much neck and hocks for a yearling, but he's a nice 2 year old! Like you, I've burned up a lot of video and trail cam pics this year, and we have some unbelievable bucks... all low fence and no protein. We have to pay a "seed buck fee" if we shoot a buck that is less than 5 1/2 and 8 typical points or more. We've collected more seed buck fees this year than all of the last 3 years put together. Chew's 8 point he got turned out to be actually 3 1/2 and weighed 144# field dressed. The bucks look like ferral hogs after they are skinned with a solid white layer of fat...
