Here's a couple of bigger bucks we have out at one of our stands out in Llano County. What ages would you give these two?





More of the 12...

12 looks to have a kicker off the g2 right at the beam

Both deer look fully mature to me. The 6 point is for sure. The 12 point looks 5 1/2 but could be a year either side of that.

They are, but at our lease, any buck over 8 points needs to be at least 6 1/2 to be cleared to take it.

That 12 is a hatch asrse. He may be well over 6.5

Got more pics of him?

I'd bet the 12 isn't older than 5.5

Then I'd want to see more photos before making the call on the 12 pt because I can't make him 6 1/2 from that one photo. The 6 pt. needs the air let out of him ASAP. Enter your local deer contest if they have a six point category. He might win it.

He's either 4 1/2 or 5 1/2, IMO. From those two photos I'm leaning back toward 4 1/2. Definitely not 6 1/2.

I honestly think that deer is over 6.5 think he is 7.5 plus, But it hard to make that call on a deer with no history on.

He isn't a protein hound deer nor protein heavy area.

Need more photos. But as of now post mature, knees a scared and muscles are degrading in the rear. Not something you see on 4-6 year old deer IMO

Bobo and LSTR, I see why you could call him 6+. Two different body types w/the 12 being the John Wayne variety. The 6 is built more like Ned Pepper. The 12's face, neck, eyes and ears just don't show more than 5.5 to me.

Post mature is always a hard call with out past history.. Especially on a new lease.
