I have a few good pictures of him. I'm probably going to add him to my 10 year old son's hit list for this year. He killed his first deer last season and he is fired up to get an even bigger one this year. I saw this buck last year a few times, but never during the day. So far this year he's been strictly nocturnal.

bell county is near temple or Waco right?

I don't see the maturity you guys all see. I would go 4.5 at most on this guy. Legs still are pretty straight down from the shoulders, no real sway in the back, no extra folds of skin from being big before, and his antlers don't go all the way to the nose....heck could even be a well fed 3.5 this year.

See the roman nose, but studies has shown that about 15-20% of young deer can have the roman nose so that isn't a determiner by itself. Gotta look at the whole picture and it looks middle aged more than mature.

Just not seeing the age on him.


Having said that, I would be happy to have him on my lease and would feel comfortable shooting him. Good looking buck!

Sag in his back, large shoulders, brisket/neck line, the look like he has a bowling ball in the middle of his stomach.

This. He does not look like an athlete anymore. He's starting to look like a grandpa.
