Target buck, never had any good day pics as he was nocturnal all summer and during early season was absentee due to rut activity, finally showing up somewhat and showed this am (don't ask why I am not hunting but will change that Monday) and gave me some day pics. Pics are from cell phone, but give a good couple pictures.

What say you on age?

Lot of staining on the hock and back legs. If not for that I would say 4... but with that he also appears to be rutted down and post rut, so I will say 5.

white around the eyes, classic roman nose of a mature buck.... think you'll be surprised when you age the teeth after shooting him... 5.5 or older,... may be on the decline and rutted down. good luck on getting after him

Thanks for the opinions. I have this guy as a 4.5-5.5 yo buck. Saw him Last year only on camera, never in person but last year was very bizarre for our lease. Hope to see him this year sometime soon.
