Am I close on my guestimate for this boy? #5326533 09/25/14 10:24 PM

I wish I had the pics from last year to compare to this year but I deleted them (oops). Last year this guy (light grey deer on far left in first pic) was a very tall 2x2. I gathered he was probably a 2 yo then. He has grown significantly this past year but I still think he is now only a 3 yo. Am making good guesses on age here? I am by far an amateur at aging deer. I plan on giving him a pass this year and will look forward to him next year. Thoughts?

Oh and all the corn on the ground is because it was surprisingly starting to mold for some reason so I decided to dump the entire barrel and let it dry out and start over.

Nice buck but difficult to age from those pics and angles he is standing at. He appears to be middle-aged though, but the bottom pic makes him look older than the others. Nice buck.

Too hard to tell from those pics. He's looking a lot better this year and that's what is most important. up

Yeah, he looks like a really good buck. Hard for me to tell how old he is. With headgear like that I'm guessing 4.5? He's a dandy. I bet once his neck fills in he'll look more impressive.
