Didn't get any velvet pictures of a mature buck here in NE Texas for a while until now! I knew this area had to have one running around due to the fact that I am the only one who has had permission to hunt it since the landowner has had the property (30 years) when I found this buck on my camera I couldn't believe what I was seeing... this is the largest free range whitetail that I've ever pursued

Nice buck! But he looks young... With free range you are taking a chance he won't get any older if you pass him.

he's older than you think, you can't really tell because his whole body isn't showing but in other photos I've seen of him he looks older

Once the rut starts there's no telling where he'll go. Get him early if you can.

That's true however based on what I can tell about the property is eventhough he might disappear for a while I still have confidence he would come back through there during the rut based on the healthy heard of does that are on that property plus I got this picture of him close to where a scrape line pops up every year so I have high hopes.. really it all comes down to the buck and all the variables that come with it. Some bucks are travelers some are home bodies, either way I'm sure there will be great memories chasing this guy!

Nice one!! He will look great when his neck swells up. I hope he stays in there for you. Good luck!

He needs at least two more years.

say it ain't so...if you'll let him walk he'll be much better next year and then the next. To get a real trophy you gotta be disciplined.

You can't tell his age based on the picture. He's chewing and half of his body is cut off. Youre making your judgement based on what? Someone posts a pic of the biggest deer he's ever seen on the place and you instantly think 3 year old? That makes sense.

I bet the OP will post more pics and it will show a 5+ yr old buck.
