We shoot a few 2-3 year old culls each year. This deer was a 6 point with a little fishook off his main beam his first yr. (2015) No tine length at all. Last year his frame appeared to almost double in size, he added one tine and his drop was about 2 inches. But still didn't have a tine over 4 inches. He scored about 100. This year, when I saw the below August photo of him in velvet, I put him on our hit list figuring he would never be much. No one has seen him since, but we just got some photos of him from the past couple weeks. Holy cow was I wrong on this one! Note: this deer is 3 1/2 so don't ever base your age decisions solely on a Roman nose. up

Great sequence! He's a cool character, glad you were wrong on him. cheers

That's why we don't cull until they reach maturity. But we don't have any carrying capacity issues where we hunt, so alot depends on where your hunting and habitat numbers I'm sure. Thanks for sharing.

In other words, he had two branched antlers his first year and did not qualify as a spike, correct?

Incredible buck! Would never in a million years judge him to be 3.5 yo.
