Hey fellas,

Just found this forum, excellent info. I hunt 15 miles west on 189 off of 277. I have a couple deer Ive been tracking last couple years and wanted some input on age and score. Let me know what yall think.



Luckily he made it through last year.

Thanks

Here is the other Bruiser, has a tag in his ear so i assume he escaped a HF. Been on him 2 years to no avail. We are LF.



We started protein in 03/15. I have more pics of this guy put gotta sort through thousands! I think he has a son hanging around too, similar horns but smaller body.

Thanks for any help.

We been letting young ones go since, well seems like since we bought the place in 2006. 2005 had a massive anthrax outbreak, and i estimated 66% kill off. Each years gotten better, last great year i recall was 2008. Drought hit us hard, bit weve supplemented water with rain guzzlers to help em out.During dry spells we truck water from windmill and fill the totes with pumps. Last couple years auodad and axis been moving in. Auodad more of a nuissance imo.

I would call them both 5 year olds. About 115 on score for the top one. High 140s on the bottom one. Could go higher hard to tell from the pics.

Good luck getting him this season. up

Thanks fellas,

Heading out to ranch Wednesday. Hope to see them guys on TC, or even a few more. If so ill add more pics after another 10 months of protein and a much better year. This will be year 3 hunting the big one, usually appears on TC in October, then January! Rain guzzler held water most of the year. Last year darn hogs sliced hose, now in pvc pipe from guzzler into ground. Anxious to see the pics and set another TC for my sons new stand.

This is a beautiful deer. Just gorgeous. I would shoot him and never think about the score or if he was a tad young. Enjoy.

Went out last week and got photos to share. Not terribly impressed but i also realize its still warm and tons of forage around.







I get a real kick out of the last one. Makes me think of a junior high school dance, bunch of timid dudes hanging out. Will these young uns ever amount to anything?

The axis are tough. I have never seen one in my stand, only pics. I have learned they love the protein and are drawn to it. We are LF so they come and go as they wish. Of course i wouldnt hesitate on this one.

Any chance pics 5 and 6 same deer? Looks a lot better in daylight, with limited view.

The 10 in the 2015 pic is 130's, nice mature deer. The 10 is a mature deer, take him (4-5 year old)

The young deer in the feeder is about 115-120" (9 point), the 8 is 120's, and are too young to take.
