Default Age this North Texas Buck

I got all these pictures on 9/29. I know the drought in Wise/Montague counties has affected the body sizes of the herd. I would appreciate any and all age replies!

He says 7+

3- Look at the distance between his eyes . His face and head is not mature , a big old mature bucks head will have eyes that are wide apart.

I guess itís possible heís old enough to start looking young again, and that seven or eight range, but I just donít see it. Taking into account every photo so far, I still think heís four.

I guessing 6+ Neck flows into the brisket and in the third pic he shows some definite callousing of the knees. He could also be 4 and just spent a lot of time trying to get a pay raise ��

1 out of 5 pics show the knees and that is enough for this conclusion?

Going with 4. Hind quarters look slightly bigger if not same size as front end. Only slightly swayed back, neck doesnít look very deep in all photos but 1. A full side profile photo would certainly help.

I’d say 3-4 based off his body mass and jaw size! Great looking deer though.

This thread is all over the map! I appreciate all the comments. I was also torn by the pictures. I am going to continue to post up new pictures of him if I receive any. Hopefully, we can get a closer consensus. Happy hunting, let ‘Em fly and definitely shoot straight!!!
