    Like Buckly, I think 4, possibly 5. Not the best poses to judge age, but that’s what game cams usually give us.

    Thanks for confirming what I was thinking, he’s a mature deer for sure.

    He has been a regular in a few of our plots. I’ll post some better pictures as they come.

    I’d guess 51/2. Could be off a year either direction.

    Where I hunt, small acreage and neighbors hunting also, a buck is fair game if he’s four. I don’t have much luck seeing a buck over two years in a row.

    He is mature - four plus - and I would consider those to be an inferior set of antlers. Our deer will show at 3 if they have potential of not. I would be putting that one in the freezer if possible.
