More worried about the age because I know it will be hard to score with these being the only pics that I have. Any help would be appreciated.

He looks pretty young. No older than 3 I would say, probably more like two.

I would call him mature based off his diet of rocks he had to live on grin He will probably score in the low to mabybe as high as mid 140's also. I get 141-142 with great tine length and beam length pushing his score up there.

3.5 or so if he hasn't been raised eating free choice protein. Younger if he has had unlimited protein

Here's one from Val Verde that we believe is 4.5 that's been raised on free choice protein.

Something about the deer made me call him mature when I first saw the picture. He looks like a thin but long and lanky older buck to me. I would not go any younger than 4 on him. More pictures would help in this case for sure. Also, not every buck fits the perfect visual "mold" of an "x" yr old buck.

STXRANCHMAN. You are absolutely correct. I shot this deer with my bow a couple years ago. He made pope and young with a gross of 141 and a net of 136 and some change. I had watched him for a couple of years but we never could decide on his age due to his body structure. We knew that he had to be at least 4 due to the years we had him watched him. In all the times that we saw him while sitting he never acted like a mature buck and would move off when a mature deer showed up. I just put this up here to show the exact point that you made about every buck not fitting the typical mold of aging a deer with just the body structure. You have to take into consideration everything not just the body. He ended up being 6yrs old. Still my most prized possession. He had the same body look every year, and I think that is what confused us the most. Official scorer said that this was the first time that he ever had to write a negative number on the tip to tip measurement.
