Topic with txtrophy85 brought this to mind on their size and how it varies from place to place.


So here is your normal size muley, middle-aged, nothing really stands out.



Here's the one struggling to to keep up following the one above.



When eye-balling them you have to consider that the mature does are over 200 the majority of the time and the yearling bucks are right about their size.








here's another 2 deer that were right there together, top one being one of those 250-260lbers.



then his traveling buddy

I always thought the brows were a good way to judge maturity on a muley as well?

Not really, some have them, some just won't. Buddy found one last year that had 6" brows and was a young deer, his wife's was several years older and her's had none, both scored low 180s.

I believe the brows have more to do with heredity not age.

Largest I'm aware of is a dressed weight of 410, which should put it around 520ish.
