I'm bored and looking at last year's pictures, and I am super anxious to get an inventory on our bucks and put together a hit list for the upcoming season. These are a few deer that I know survived last year, and I'm wondering how old y'all think they are and what they might look like this year? Not much history or very many pics of any of them.
A couple of ratty horned bucks, ole big brow, and the "ghost 8"
Keep in mind all these pics except for the big brow buck were from around February/March. They were all really rutted down around that time.
Ole big brow, didn't get many of him last year, how long do ya'll think his brows will be this year?
No name for this one, he showed up around February, we had never seen him on camera or in person before this. Age? Does it look like an injury to that side in velvet, a permanent ugly side, or is he broken?
Another one that showed up late in the season. He has some ratty horns too. Age? What do you think he'll be this year?
Now, I had a chance to shoot this deer last year. "Ghost 8" Just an 8 point, nothing special, but we had never seen him, on camera, or in person, either. I let him walk, and got these pics a couple months later. Would ya'll have done the same thing? Age? How much do ya'll think he will grow?
I ought to have a picture or two of some of these deer within a month or so. Figure I'll update the thread as I get them, and let ya'll make some guesses as to what they will be.
