If it wasn't for the injury I would say 3.5, but he could be rundown from fighting and the injury. I would ground check him for score. May not make it through the year.

3.5 and around 130. I would pass and hope he makes it. Looks like his back leg is broke so his antlers will probably be affected next year but I think he'll make it.

Is that his tongue or his lower lip that got ripped off the bone maybe? Either way, tough one to age for me I think because I tend to think he is run down from the rut. Maybe 4.5? He’s not fully mature yet I don’t think though. Nice buck

I had a buck like that 3 yrs ago every pic I got of him his tongue was hanging out. When he picked up corn he would hold head straight up in air to get it to the back of his mouth. I finally shot him and he had a broken front jaw but health looking deer.

I don't know anything about this buck he came in on a trail with 2 other bucks the other two I have pics of but not of this one I guess if I see him in daylight I'll know for sure weather to drop him or walk him

If you see him live it'll be easier to assess how badly he's injured. Based on pics I'd say take him out or he may not survive to next season.

Sad because I don't think he makes it. Body already showing the damage and will only get worse.

No older then 4.5 but I would say 3.5 and 135-139

I was thinking the same thing about ground checking him once I see him I would love to see him reach 6 or 7 but idk if he will make it

That deer could be 3.5 or 5.5. Without pics from previous years or before the rut, it's really no way of knowing for sure this time of year. Had a 5 year old 8 just the other day 20 yards from me that I would of thought was 3 if I didn't have previous pics of him. meanwhile a 3 year old in perfect condition is pushing him around

Kill him or he will die if he is like the one I had on my place.

Pretty sure that is his lower lip ripped back

Have a young one at the house that was acting funny and I thought his tongue was hanging out too. When he got closer I could tell his bottom lip had been pulled back.
Assuming from fighting.
No idea if they will survive and the one at my house is no where close to meeting AR so shooting him is not an option
