Default Age Guesses? Lampasas buck

Haven't hunted in Lampasas in at least 10 years. Hoping some people that are more familiar with the quality of deer in this area can shed some light on the age of this guy.

4 in my opinion. Doesn't have a sway back yet and briskets/lower neck isn't filled out yet. He has a little gut on him though so I bet he's at least 4. This is a tough time of year to age deer, at least for me.

6+, imo, down hill, you notice all the features of an old buck in him.

Looks like he is going to make some crab pinchers at the end of his beams. As far as age, how old is that dirt he is standing on? I like the guess that says 7-10 years old but hell who knows.....maybe he is only 3.

That physical characteristic can be an indication of age. But, it isn't always the case. He may not like pee on his legs.

Ancient. He has a big belly, big brisket, he sinks down into his stance like it hurts, and even with his summer coat his face looks OLD.

I agree with everyone that says 8 or older. That deer could easily be 10 IMO. I would think he would be a great target.

I think I'm definitely set up in this one's core summer area. Will be interesting to see if he moves very far once the velvet comes off. In case anyone likes watching them grow, here are a few more of the old boy putting on some more length.
