Only way I can get this guy near 150" is giving him 12" G2s and 30" main beams. I just don't see that.

A deer ear measures 6" from base to tip. Typically what I use to guestimate tine length. You can also use measurement from center of eye to tip of nose which is roughly 8" on a mature buck. Good comparison when it comes to figuring Main Beam length.

Daytime pics look a lot better! I may jump to 140"-145". Adding a couple on main beams and 5" on tine length. Heck of an 8 no matter what.

I agree. the day pics show him better. His 2s and 3s are almost identical in length. i wonder if the 3s grew some between the times.

edit... i guess not. looks like the day pics are earlier than he night pics..

Appreciate all the input! Garguy, where do you have him age wise? Part of me says 4. Another part of me says 5. I haven’t had a deer stump me like this in a while. He’s not on the hitlist but just curious. First year on this place we picked up to have something closer to the house for those mid week hunts that we can make happen when we don’t have enough time to go to Mexico for a few days.

Again thank you everyone who have chimed in. Much appreciated

Between this buck and the East Tx score thread buck they score about the same. Some BIG 8s this year all throughout Tx. I've got a couple on cam and hope to get my hands on both. One for me and the other for my wife.

I know you asked for Steve's opinion. If you look at the brisket in your second daylight pic it's well developed. Easily a 5 yr old IMO. Part of me says he could be 6.

Nice brisket, short legs, See what Steve has to say.

I think he is six but if there is one thing i have learned from running east tx cameras its that I SUCK at aging deer with great confidence without history. his is shaping up to be a dream year for me though a i have known age on a mature crop!.

Minimum 5. Young deer can't and don't have briskets.

Yep and he will look seven in november. I realize how hard this game is.. i once thought I was great at it and would just be positive of a deers age from a few pics. Now after hundreds of thousands of pics and much history i realize how foolish i was. I checked a camera yester day and had a buck on the card that i know well. he was definately four last year. That sucker looks seven or eight this year at a known FIVE. if i didnt have positive history, he would be a dead deer walking this year.

Absolutely impossible to know a deer's age unless you have history.
