Default Wrapper. 1 1/2 or 2 1/2

This is Wrapper last year. Pics are at about 8 yards. I'll post pics of him from this year in a few hours after I get opinions.

2.5 I really think he's 3.5 though TD. I dont know it's hard to tell from pics but I think that's his age.

It's been busy. I started the year looking for Lucky and Double Kicker 10. DK10 has been a no show and it took 12 days to finally get Lucky on video. I've seen some nice bucks, most too young to kill. I may concentrate on a wide 8 point that I wasn't interested in from the TC pics but I had him come in while hunting Lucky and he kinda got my attention. We also have a new place in addition to our main lease and I've put NO time in on it. Dog's son swears he saw a BIG 10 last week on that place. Junco has been on the back burner, but I'm starting next week trying to kill a buck I named Bo Point three years ago. He's my kind of deer. WIDE. So, it's been busy and hasn't let up yet. I'm lovin' it.

Yeah, it's hard to tell off stills and I preach not making decisions off stills. But, I had "eyes on" this buck and got video and stills. That's why I limited the age choices. I'm pretty sure he's not older than 2 1/2. He did put on about 50 lbs and quite a few inches, but he eats out of at least 3 protein feeders. He'll get two more years for sure. He's not my kind of buck, so he'll have to really do something for me to kill him, but when he walks in, you will grab your bow. LOL

3 1/2 judging from his shoulder depth, hind end, and skull length.

If I had a pic with a doe beside him, you wouldn't think he was big. This year, he's probably put on 50 lbs and almost that many inches. LOL

Since you are limiting the voting I will vote 2 1/2 with no hanging chads involved. He would be a heck of a 1 1/2 with headgear like that! Well at least where I hunt anyway.

We found one side of his rack this spring. It's not as big as it looks in these pics, but very nice for his age. We never dreamed he'd do what he did this year.

I like the way MC was thinking on this one. If I wasn't limited to 2.5 I would say 3.5.

His face/head says 3.5, but his body and in particular his hocks say 2 1/2. All factors in the pictures considered I'd agree with 2 1/2.
