How old are these two bucks? Are they same age? And would you cull this spike?

I have another smaller spike that I'm pretty sure is 1.5 yr old and his spikes are only 3" long. I'm thinking this one in the pic is 2.5. I have his twin brother also except the longer spike is on the opposite side....

Okay, from looking at the stomach, chest, and legs, I would guess 3&1/2. Put him down if you get a chance.

Back one you cant really tell much.

I bet they are both 2.5 or less. The front one is probably 1.5.

Probably 1.5.

Older spikes are so rare. 99.99% of spikes are 1.5.

I shoot that spike just to find out exactly how old he is. I don't think he is a 1 yr old with all that brisket and shoulder muscling. It would not shock me if he is 3 or even 4 yrs old.

Here's my spike that I believe is 1.5. You can't even see his spikes in the pic they're only about 3". His body size is half of the one in the OP

Not many will argue that 99% of spikes are 1.5 from those pics I'd say that buck is in the other 1%.
