I can't seem to get this buck past 3 yo. These are the only 2 pictures I have thus far. He gets a pass this year regardless. Opinions??

Looks like 3. I bet he puts on more points in the next couple of years. Those bases look huge.

I think he might be 4 based on horn size if he’s LF. Body looks to be a 3 year old. Stud of a buck already

I'd lean towards 4 as well if this is a LF buck. Serious bone on his head - and his face/jaw doesn't look all that lean.

If that's a 3 year old - he's a hoss.

Nice buck

What part of the state? I doubt he is young, but he's not old either. Probably 4 from that early season trail picture. Those big brow tines are a great gene to have around

Central Texas. I agree, the brows are awesome. He will get at least 1 more year. I hope to get some video of him in the next few weeks. Iíll post it here when I do.

Mhes not old but he is getting a brisket and some sink in his forehead. I would guess him 5. That's just a guess though. One more year should pay off on that one.

He is starting to show his face more and more. I still think he is a baby. Some pictures scream 3 yo and some say 5.

Thats a great looking frame on that buck, big brow tines are so cool and rare.

We have several bucks that are known age deer, each of them are 5-9 years old and several of them look younger and/or have smaller bodies then other bucks their age. If we didnt know the age of them for sure, then we would always think they are younger than they are.

Looks like a really nice 4 yo to me as well. With a frame like that you better hope he stays put! Even a management minded neighbor may slip up and shoot that one being blinded by that big ole frame.

Very minimal protein. But tons of acorns, oats, wheat, corn, pecans. Basically anything you can ask for and on a river.

That deer is 5 . Last group of pictures tell the tale with the deep neck/brisket. You can let him walk but he’s mature and he’s just an 8 pt, a sweet 8 pt though. I’d kill him if I got the chance.

Once he is fattened up for the rut, you will more easily be able to tell.

With these pics, a he** of a 3yo or a straight up 4. BUT, as mentioned, fills back out from his summer body with the heat back to a winter/rut body, possibly 5.
