I am thinking these guys are in the 3 yo range. Don't see too many signs of serious age.

How old do you think they are and give justification for your thoughts please.

Both are at least 3 but could easily be older. Would like to see hard-horned pics in September.

They're twins, so same age on both. Too hard to tell this time of year, best guess is 3.

I would guess for the coons to be at least 2 years old. Hard to tell as they grow faster on the high protein diet.

These deer are in Oklahoma, range conditions have been very good and there are plenty of acorns and pecans in the fall (do deer eat pecans?)

Anyway, I am not sure going by belly size will be a good determinant of age, as nearly all my deer have nice full bellies.

I would call them 4.

A little sway back in both of them. Stained hocks. Some brisket buildup starting.

Deer on right appears to be older to me. Larger body in general more developed front end and bigger but and has/is developing that beer gut look.

Id say the one on the left is 3 and the other 4 maybe 5.

Or maybe left is 2 and right is 3-4?

Ive never laid eyes on an Oklahoma deer though.

I agree the one on the left could be a year younger than the one on the right.

This almost perfectly matches my thoughts.

But that includes the last sentence as well, so take it for what it's worth.
