Default 3 years of buck history (East Tx edition)

I was going through pictures on my phone and found some that I thought I'd share of this buck I've had on camera for the last 3 years. It's funny how some bucks can jump 20+ inches in a given year and some don't jump at all. Doubt he does much again this year but with all this rain, ya never know. He'll be on my short list if he does anything at all. Pics are in order from 2018-2020. Tell me how old he's gonna be in 2021

Awesome, I too have had pics of multiple bucks south of you where they just don't put in much more year after year. I always figured my issue was lack of nutrition. How's your other bucks do as far as growth?

All my other bucks have jumped 20+ inches. I picked up this tract late in 2018 and didn't even hunt it then. I got pictures of a 4.5 yr old, mid 140's buck that jumped 20 inches in 2019 when I killed him at 162". Buck I killed in 2020 jumped 20 inches too, going from a mid 120's to 145". The only thing I can figure is this buck is over the hill and not gonna do much more unless he throws some trash

From those pics you should have shot him in 2018. He looks old for sure. It’s always a gamble year to year but if you kill them you will never know what they will do.

I tend to do this more times than not. Guys on the lease ask why I even bring a weapon to the stand. Last 2 bucks I've taken were old and on the decline. Had seen them the years previous and just hoped that they would make it. Hindsight 20/20

I was gonna say older than four for sure. Beautiful buck and glad he’s been able to pass on his genes. I think he’s done as well.

Ya I agree. He was at least 4 to 5 in 18' and would say 7 - 8 in 21'. If you don't have another shooter I would take him given the opportunity.

I agree about killing him in 2018.. I'm just in a one buck county though and had a couple of other bigger bucks I was targeting. Maybe he'll throw on some trash or something cool this year

While you have three years of pictures but that only equates to two years of age. Let that soak in With that being said, I think he was "mature" in 2018 and also agree he probably won't get much better. You can always hope he throws a lot more trash to go with that 8 point frame and short G3s.

Old. He is 8+ now. He is a hammer and made his big jump before you secured the place. Deer are like people, all mature and grow differently. Deer you think will blow up donít and deer you donít put much attention to will blow up. Itís not exactly science, itís just part of it. Enjoy hunting that old sucker

In the last few pic's his legs look really short in comparison to his body. That's an old warrior there... Thanks for sharing!

I've seen deer swing from year to year... Saw an 11pt fall back to a straight 8pt, but a large 8pt and then the next year back to larger 11pt. Crazy how mother nature works.

Based on the first pic he has to be at least 6.5-7.5, with all the rain this year, I don't see how you pass him given the opportunity this year. I love his frame. Great deer

At his age he will probably be within +/- 5" from last year. His best years are behind him.

I agree with others, I think he was over 6 in 2018. He is getting really old in the later pics. What a great deer.

9+ this year.

If he's your biggest deer to date, hunt him and hunt hard this year! I saw the pics that were from last year, so let us know if you get any new pics this year. I like seeing deer through the years. Good job man! Thanks for sharing & don't count the old deer out, with good nutrition he may surprise us all..

I believe this buck to be as old or older as the heavy 8... he definitely keeps em all run off from the corn pile. He needs an arrow or bullet badly
