Default Age/Score Please

I thought i had this bucks age figured out but some of the pics from later in the year got me 2nd guessing... Hope he's not gonna be on the down hill slide next year. He's been nocturnal most of the time at the feeders other than twice as far as the cam shows. Gonna try & catch him on a game trail away from feeder during muzzle loader season.

Best guess 7.5


I'd have a hard time believing he was any less than 6.5

But im not a biologist so there's that

I would say "mature" 4.5+, whenever I see what appears to be a short nose on a buck, I start thinking mature.

I’m with the 5.5 crowd. He looks run down from the rut, nice buck. Mid 140’s maybe? I think his beams are a little short to get him to 150, but he’s got an extra 3-4 split on that g2. Nice buck

I see mature, 5.5-6.5 and mid 140's. He should only get better.

Horns look thinner with night cam pics.
He's got serious mass, pushing 155 plus, maybe 160.
5.5

I would worry more about him getting smarter and more nocturnal than going downhill
I see 5.5 and 140ish guess.
Gonna be a real trophy next year.
Good luck

He's in his prime now and hopefully with good conditions come spring, he'll still be in his prime come fall. He's a healthy mature deer and showing his age a bit. I'd say he's probably at least 5 1/2 and likely 6 1/2... I think he'll scare 150 with these antlers. May put on mass and character next year as he matures a bit more... Good potential for him. He's already a nice trophy.

Thanks for the input!! I was originally thinking 4.5 but now leaning a little older. Just hope he does ok next year if we're not successful in muzzleloader season...
