All of our cameras were stolen this fall, so we don't have any pics. How old do you think he is?

Tough call. Slender legs, slight frame and small rack suggest youngster. Length and head point to mature. Every once in awhile you get one that's just hard to call without some context (location, history, etc.).

Eastern border of Duval County with Jim Wells. Low Fence. Hard to say the history because most of our 1.5 and 2.5 deer usually have pretty crappy antlers. I'll post some pics here of some of the other deer.

With added reference, I lean more toward post-mature, in decline. Younger bucks pictured look healthier, firmer with some upside. Antler genetics do not appear to be the most promising.

I agree about the genetics, but there have been a couple over the years that were worth taking. I think you have to actually click on the link to view the following pictures.

Is the last photo a 2017 pic of the same deer from 2016 in the first photos?

No it's not. That photo is from 2011 or 2012. He was never seen in person.

Some nice ones taken over the years, and that's a bruiser in that last game cam pic!

I agree. He was never seen again. I wonder if possibly he could be the one in the first pic, but really old.

It's a possibility. Weak brow on same side. If so, he is very very very old!
