Looking for some thoughts on age of this deer. I'm not very good at it and could use some help. I am leaning toward 'mature'. He and another buck I call Curly Joe pretty much dwarf every other buck as far as body size goes.

I was leaning toward 5. Pot belly and a little double chin action going, but that was before looking at pics from last year. Now I am thinking a healthy 4 year old thanks to the abundant moisture we have had.

Do you have any pics of him last year as the rut in your area was heating up? That's the best time of the year to get the best idea on age.

What are you guys seeing that makes you think he could be 3? Maybe you're seeing something I am not.

Unfortunately, I do not. For some reason I can not find any of my 2018 pictures other than July 31 - August 25.

I see 5. Summer pics are tough unless the deer is 2 or 7 IMO.

'Com Chris don't you know every deer on TBH is 3 to 5? I personally think he's a very mature deer, at least 6 if not more.

I'll guess 6.

Also your feeder looks about 15' tall.

Lol, yea it's up there. Thought about putting a seat up there and use it as a stand as well.


In truth, I built it high so the stupid cows couldn't reach the motor and tear up another one. The fence is a recent addition.
