It's almost August, so it's time to put up the golf clubs and start dreaming of the brush country. I would love to take a big slick 8 and I think I may have a prime candidate. I saw this guy 3 times last year, including the last Saturday of the season. I can't wait to see if he stays at 8 points and puts on some mass and maybe a few inches elsewhere. I'm struggling with his age and looking for opinions. To help you out, this pic was taken in mid-December, southern Live Oak County. I've got some video I could post that might help.

Nice buck and I'd guess 5.5 based on facial characteristics. Body looks 4.5 to me

Nice looking buck! Looking at his body, I would say he was 4-1/2 in the picture. That's awesome you saw him the second to the last day of the season last year! Where I am at, if I let a nice one walk, I always have to worry someone around us will take him instead of letting him get to his prime...most people don't have enough patients!

I would expect his belly to be starting to sag a little bit this year and I would probably put him on the ground the first chance I got this season if I were you!!!

Good luck!!

Grosvenor, I've got that dude at 5-6 yo. Ever get out to Northshore? I used to wear that place out in college and watched the Hogan and Nike tour stop there. Good luck this season. "Battle of the Bridge"

Agree with Ross and STX.

Sure a nice 8 though, or a 7 in the photo? Broke brow

Thanks for the input. Last year I waffled between 4.5 and 5.5. I'll try to post some video to see if it changes anyone's mind.
