Default Too old to be a fork horn?

Your opinion. Based on body size- is this buck a little old to still be sporting just 4 points and one nub of a brow tine?

Looks like a 3 yr old. Depending on your other bucks I would put him in the freezer.

Forks are too curvy and long plus lack of brows for the body size in my opinion.

Agree with the "looks 2, maybe 3 crowd."

He could be younger than you think. With that large of a body he might surprise you next year. Be worth a pass to me to see what happens next season and maybe beyond. If he doesn’t improve by then put him in the freezer.

He still looks like he needs a leveling kit. Probably 2.5. Your call.

Probably the camera angle making a young deer look older than he is.
