Default Is this guy ancient?

Hi guys. What do y’all think about this buck? He has a Roman nose, huge brisket and really fat body. Looks like sagging back and stomach as well.

I was thinking 6+ but just wanted to confirm.

Thank you,

Nathan

6+ is exactly what I see. He shows multiple signs of that age class.

He certainly has a saggy brisket but he kind of just looks like a fat 4-year old to me. I'd have to see him in person. Either way, I say he's old enough to take out.

No real redeeming qualities to keep him around another year. Short beamed short tined 8. A legitimate “cull”

Thanks for all the input everyone. We have never seen him in person and only for a short period in October but we are looking out for him.

Short wide head, lose skin on bottom jaw line, big leg bones, saggy brisket, short tined 8pt all signs that lead to 5/6yr old. AIM SMALL, SHOOT STRIAGHT AND GOOD LUCK

He's not ancient, I consider ancient deer 9 plus but he's at least 5.
