    What area are you located? Body size of the deer can be very misleading.

    Basically was just wondering if he was at his peak or if he will get bigger next year?

    That's a top-tier buck for PA, but I doubt he is at his peak based on what I can see. My guess is 4.5 years old (low confidence based on poor body pictures) and low to mid 140's. His beams, G2's and G3's are all really nice! I believe he has the type of rack conformation to be world class, but there is no way in the world I could pass that deer.

    Not much of an angle for aging. I'd say mid 40s, again, tough to say sometimes from one angle.

    I would ground check him and get your score. Take his two bottom, middle teeth out and have him aged though cementum annuli.

    I'd say 128-132". Clean 8. Not a ton of mass or brows. Great deer. I love those 8's

    The picture from last year he was a 10. Sure its the same deer or are the extra points just not visible in the pic.

    Big frame on a mature deer! I'd bet he's at least 140" but head on pictures can be deceiving.

    Im just assuming its the same deer its the same core area he lives in and he made it through deer season last year unless there are several mature bucks in that area which is rare for central pa public ground
