He looks like he has not peaked. If this was a high fence or an area I could completely control I'd say he is going to grow bigger and I'd let him grow. If it's low fence/free range he'd be hard to pass up. Pretty Deer



Our place is low fence and deer def take advantage of it. Roamers. But we are gonna let him go and see if he blows up next year. No telling what he will turn into with good rains. Gonna keep our fingers crossed and pray he makes it to next year.

Last year he looked 4.5 to me in 120's. This year I think you may be right putting him mid 140's but he looks 5.5 to me


Think you can/Think you can't/Either way you're right

Looking similiar in pictures has nothing to do with what both deer will end up scoring. Pictures can be taken at an angle that makes a deer looking different that what he really looks like in person or on the ground. Judging body size from a picture can be very difficult if you have no knowledge the what the actual deer on that ranch weigh at various ages. Body mass makes a huge difference in trying to field judge a deer from a picture.

I would put him at 4.5, 135. It doesn't look like he's going to put on enough tine length to get out of the 130s.
