First pic dude looks older, would agree with 5.5 or could be 4.5, second dude would put in same
Ballpark as first dude 4.5-5.5, third and fourth bucks appear younger as healthy 3.5 yo bucks, could be really healthy 2.5 yo bucks if they been chowing the protein down since off the teet.

Thanks guys. I've been arguing pretty heavily with a few guys on the property on that 1st buck. I have 100's of pictures of him and he's clearly thicker (stomach girth) than any other buck. Only an 8 pointer to boot.

Those two bucks in the first two pics are fully mature, 6 or older. They will really show their age next month also.

Last pic posted has a wide brisket, I still think he looks old, just different stances don't show as much.

I'm with stx. First two deer are 6 or older. I'd be willing to bet #2 is 7 or 8. Very healthy animals but no need to keep spending $ feeding them.

I agree with the above. First 2 need to be harvested. The rest look 3-4 for most of them.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I have a bunch of pictures of the first buck with him having his eyes closed or where he's squinting. I read someplace that this was an indicator of an older deer? confused2
