That pic is representative of that deer during summer....just grabbed a recent broad side pic to show his girth and back sway. His range is small and like many of you we were thinking 3+ but waiting for his body to change as rut progresses to finalize age estimate. No trick question....instead, a prelude to an interesting happening.
After filling feeders, there is always a half bag of corn left over...so we just put that out at one of the better camera locations. When I drove up on the ATT, he was bedded about 50 yards away....stood up, came closer, and stared.
Put out the corn so the camera has time to finish snapping images before opening. I was a bit un-nerved when he hopped the fence and came inside the small plot with me....very brazen behavior.
Pretty obvious his intentions....and here is ATV at same zoom for reference....yes, about 4-5 yards apart (all three of us).
So I just reconfiged the cam to hyperfire mode, swapped batteries and took about 40 pics on my iPhone of him. When I left then he left! Pretty sure this 'lack of fear' behavior (very small flight zone) is indicative on a 2 year old. Three year olds or older tend to be a bit more reclusive with larger flight zones. Main frame 9 with extra eye guards growing rearward.....good basal antler mass for a young deer...maybe he lives a couple more years! I know deer have acclimated to our routine moving cattle and such...but wasn't suspecting this level of acclimation!
