Thanks again. Think he will ever be anything but a spike? Because most of the time we let spikes walk but this looks older.
You've got to remember that we've experienced 2 years of well above average rainfall and range conditions in almost every corner of the state, so deer are healthy and are often looking older than they really are. Given another few years, I bet this spike could be a pretty nice deer. He may not ever be one of the best bucks in his age class, but that doesn't mean he can't still be a respectable buck.
