IMO a trophy is relative to where you hunt. S. Texas guys wouldn't give him a second look but if thats a nice buck for your area I say shoot him and be proud of it.

He's 3.5. The deer with him is 2.5. Good luck on getting your trophy!

Kind of what I was thinking looking at the buck next to him. His hind legs are much higher.

He's definitely at least 3.5. Like you I don't see many like that at our place and would love to shoot that deer. Good luck!

Maybe the reason you donít see many deer of this caliber is because they are getting shot at 3 1/2

The best way to get better aging them is to observe their mannerisms and size compared to young and middle aged deer.

If you like to shoot 3.5 year old bucks like that one great, but you can't observe mature bucks if you don't let them live past 4.5.

Good luck this season. up

Thanks for the input and I agree. The problem I have is I'm on a very small property the entire area around me is full of hunters. Very rare to see a 4 1/2 year old or older in this county. Tons of does and lots of young bucks, so many it will get better in time. Thanks again

I'd like to see more photos if you have any. His brisket looks like if could be that of a deer older than 3 and the sunken forehead gives me that impression as well.

That's a monster in NE Texas! In my neck of the woods, many deer do not have brow tines.
