He has been eatin good. He has a lot of body mass. This time of year is always harder for me to age older bucks, because theyre necks haven't bulked up yet. Kinda helps when you see that big ol 24 in neck and bulked up shoulders. Next month is always a better month to age them. Id say he is at least 5. Looks like he has a lot of body fat but his back is still straight. They start getting a little swag in the back around 7.
Runnin'em down like a dog has always worked best for me.
