Have a few pics of this fella on camera but only a couple that are clear shots. He's kinda hard to read on age much less score. Little G1's but kinda saggy gut and brisket area. Any thoughts?

Looks a little shallow in the front chest area but very good girth to that gut and rear end looks filled out as well. I say 4 year old.

He's hangin with his homies out at the local feeder. Nice buck. I dare say that he will never blossom out much bigger the next season, but who knows. Heck may even throw some non typ points in another year. Looks like a good buck to hunt. Judging by the body and rack Id say he is a 4 year old. With that short g3 and 8 point rack Id say he is ready to hunt. up

Depending on where you hunt, I'd say he could be a shooter. Pretty buck. Once he slicks off, he's probably 128"-132"

Nice 9 point buck. IMO he is either a 4 yr old or 5 yr old from those pics. He has a lot of neck muscle to be much younger.

Well he's pretty odd on the right side. I don't know if its from previous damage or a injury or just off genentics.

I would put him at 2-3 years old. He does not have the "Roman Nose" of an older deer. I would give him another year.

If you pass that deer as a 2yr old you will never find one old enough to shoot...

I would say 3 or 4. While he doesn't have the Roman nose, it's not a long skinny looking snout, brisket is just starting to get a point but doesn't look real big, hard to tell but the back looks like it may be starting to sag. I'd give it another year too.

Not all deer have a "Roman Nose". If they do have it, age is not the limiting factor in getting it.

Yep. You couldn't exactly see the details until the different angle. I figure he'll be hard horned or starting to after this week. He's noticeable larger bodied than other bucks but looks funny to me.
