Just got pics of this big boy today. He's easily the biggest we have ever gotten on cam. I know these aren't the best pics for aging or scoring but I wanted to post them anyway and will add more when/if I get them. I'm thinking 4.5-5.5 yrs old (I don't think his body is big enough to be older than 5.5) at most and around 150ish. Thanks everyone.

lts, he must not like your pen, lol..I think you're right on age, 4.5-5.5. He is close to 150, I'd go 145ish...

Haha thanks DQ. I'm guessing he's still submissive to that 6 who's a cranky old buck!

I hope I'm wrong but his right side looks very weak.

I think you might be correct, he doesn't look symmetrical.

I zoomed in on the pic and it looks like he's got 4 on the right side and 5 on the left with good brows on both. I'm not saying his right side is as good as the left but the angle of the pic has them all in a row basically making it tough to judge. Hopefully I'll get a better look at his right side soon enough.

That's what I see also , need some better pics. But just don't think he is even close to. 150

Nice buck for sure. Definitely a very weak R side compared to a stunning L side. Nice width. If he is the top, eye catching buck on your place, I'd be proud to put him on a wall!

I'm really hoping that if we can get a better pic of his right side, that it's not as weak as it seems it might be. When you zoom in, you can see the other tines and can tell that he's got 4 pts on that side so I'm hoping it's just a funny angle.

He is a nice buck that looks to be either 4 or 5 yrs old. Just don't get wrapped in the whole score game and pass up the buck based on score alone. If you like him kill him cheers

Oh i completely agree stx... I was just curious about the score. He'd easily be my biggest by about 20-25 inches probably. If he isn't old enough, regardless of score, I would do my best to pass on him. If he's 5 or so, he'll probably go on the hit list as my #1.

He's a real nice buck about 4-5. Weak on left side for sure. Best I can tell from last year he had the same thing going on with one of his antlers. If so I would put him on the hit list if you like him.

so you do think it's the same buck from last year? I know it's hard to tell from those pics. That's all we've gotten of him so far.

He surely may be or not. Unless you can determine real defining traits like notched ear or particular point, forked G2 etc. gonna be hard to know for sure..Either way, he's mature and harvestable. Good luck.
