The last few years i have been posting known age deer that got younger as they quit the rut. This is another great example of that as he looks considerably younger this year. I posted an old deer named Curly last year that did the same. the crazy thing is that the vast majority of this site would not have put him or Curly on the hit list. Maybe I wouldnt have either if i didnt have history.

The more i run cameras and study these east tx deer, the less i know..
I love it!! You're a sneaky one sir. lol

He's def in his prime. WHACK HIM!!
He isnt 6.5 but you may well be right about him being in his prime . he definately has his best rack this year as a 10 year old. By the way, there are some nice daylight pics of him on here.

I dont have a recent pic of him. A couple of his buddies blew up though. Got a camera out now and should get pics of him soon.
