I took the following pics on January 2, 2015. It was hard for me to let this deer walk but I wanted to get another year of age on him.


The pictures are kind of fuzzy because it was low light and he was moving. I have about 20 minutes of video of him. woot

Good call, my guess is he's 4.5, still maintaining decent weight for post rut.

Very nice buck, took lots of inner strength to let that one walk. Not sure I could have.

Nice buck, but IMO he is very rutted down at that time of the year. Face and head area make me want to lean more towards 5 at that time of the year. No matter if he is a year younger, you let him walk. He walked into the best rainfall in years cheers Should be a toad this year deer2

Very nice buck!! Hope he sticks around and you get to benefit from your decision and the great rainfall most areas have experienced. Good luck up

I agree with you. He was rutted down and was still carrying a lot of weight. I had him at 5 but I have been off by a year before. Some of his tines are bladed and he has a pretty heavy burr around the bases. When I look at the video I took, his brisket definitely flaps back and forth when he walks. I would like to post the video but my computer does not have enough horsepower. confused2

Hope he shows up for you this year. That would be a tough pass up.

He is a beauty, don't know that I could have let him walk. You did and like stx said he went into the best year for growth. Hope you get him this year.
