I was wondering what you guys thought on the age of this guy. Thinking 5.5 or 6.5. In some pics he looks younger and in other pics older. What say you?

He is mature(5+) and would not get any maturer (grin) if stepped out in front of me. Great buck! cheers

Great looking buck, and I agree with at least 5.

Thanks guys. I grew up in the age of "if it has horns it dies", then it was "8 pt or better". Trying now to only harvest mature deer and teaching my son to do the same. This would easily big the biggest buck for either of us but don't want to kill it simply for that reason.

You will hunt a long time into the future before you kill a buck that nice with that kind of age. He will look much older in a couple of weeks when the rut starts. He is mature and if you like him, kill him. Your decision though, not any of ours. cheers

Yeah, the fact I'm even questioning this shows I've been spending way too much time on this forum. 5 yrs ago I wouldn't have thought twice about putting a bullet in this dude!

Also, should've mentioned, this is my first year hunting on the rolling plains. All my other hunting has been done on small, low-fenced hill country tracts. Much different bodies on those deer out west.

You have over-thought it to long now grin I would not have even posted on here or thought twice about it since I have a bow and crossbow. I would be worried more about his pattern, blind location and wind direction. cheers

What part of Kent county?

The reason I ask is because I own land on Duck Creek in Kent county and that's a great looking buck!

5+ prime time buck.

Once you hunt the rolling plains, you will never leave unless you have to.

We are in southern Dickens county about a mile north of the Kent county line.

I hope you and your son ground check him. cheers
