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.
Recognize that taking real away from real is ruining respect and genuine values in real life and in real wildlife. If you dont care to, you may have already become too corrupted by man's greed and unethical new ways.
