Attached are pics from the deer in question. No live pics, as this deer had never been seen until the day it was taken. This deer seemed to have characteristics of an older deer in every way - but the body of this deer was much smaller than the norm for our area - Foard Co.

The boy in the pic is 65lbs to give you an idea of how small the body on this deer was. The deer couldn't have weighed more than 100lbs it seemed.

Taxidermist aged deer at 4.5 - 5.5 year old, and had no clue of body size - just the jaw bone. I can add more pics, or different angles if it helps.

I would say no less than 5.5 maybe 6.5



If it's not overkill then it's underachievement.

i would have to agree with the Taxi on this one. Looks to be more in the 4.5 range to me. I'm no expert though.
