After looking at the first photo, I was guessing 6 1/2 years but in the other two photos, he appears a little younger. I much prefer to estimate age from a video and when they are closer to the rut as there are some other features that will show up that might improve my margin for error. Here goes, 5 1/2 years and I am sure I only missed him two years one way or the other. He is in very good body condition, where every he is, must be raining or he is getting to a free choice feeder.
Adios,
Gary

Looks 5.5+ years to me. I can never judge velvet deer, but I'd be surprised if he doesn't push 150". No way I'd let him walk!

I see a 7 yr old buck that is upper 150's crowding 160. I would not hesitate to shoot him if he was younger. He has calloused knees and is sitting down on his hooves. Body shape is that of a mature buck in great shape. Good luck!

NICE buck for sure, and I would have no qualms shooting him on sight.

However, don't see a fully mature deer here. I see middle aged for sure. He isn't a young one, but I would put him in the 4-5 yo category, possibly even three if being protein fed. No thick hanging brisket, flat back with no sway, no staining on the hocks, nice sharp nose that isn't romanized yet, and knees that are not knobby or scarred up. Take the rack away and the only thing on him that points to age is the greying around the face/eyes.

But having said all that, he'd be a dead buck on my lease if I could shoot straight, and if he walked out that would be in serious question...

^^^ I wirte that as STX is saying 7...ugghh. I don't se ehim sitting down on his hooves any more than other deer I have seen. I also don't see calloused knees. Maybe I need my eyes checked...

As said, to me it wouldn't matter about aging, he is a dead deer. But I have a lot to learn I guess.

Hope you stick him so you can check his molars and let us know is real age. Look forward to the hard antlered pics.

If I was your neighbor I would tell you he looks 2.5 and you need to let him go. Then cap him and never say a word! All is fair in hunting and fishing! cool

We'll let you know for sure if we get a solid chance to take him. He is the biggest deer we've had on this place since we've been there.

Agree. He has no sway back, young looking face. He needs at least one more and maybe 2 more years.

Clyde played electric bass... Given your situation I'd take him first chance I got. I hope he hangs around for you. Seeing many does? That might be the deciding factor.

You should get your eyes checked I'm half blind and I can see the knees.
