Whats up with this Deer in your opinion is it an old deer on the decline? Or just had a rough few months? Great rack for east Texas but his body looks terrible.

Not old. Nose/snout still narrow and skinny, skin on face is still tight and no calloused knees. Definitely a younger sick deer.

Also look like he could have an injury of some sort on his lower flank

It looks like there is something wrong with his lower jaw in that pic. If he can't eat, that's why he is run down. Hope he makes it to opening day. Good luck.
