Kinda hard to tell from those pics but he looks to be on the mature side.

Extremely difficult without a standing broadside photo or two of him. He is fluffed up to stay warm in one photo and only half of him stretched out walking in the other. He appears to be at least 4.

Looks 4.5. Hard to get a score with no good brow tine look. Giving him 4 inch brow tines I have him at 118 to 123

Ok thank you guys for your help. So another question. This is our 1st year on a lease in Duval county. I think the previous hunters shot it up pretty good. I thought we would be seeing better deer than we are. So would you let this deer walk or take it?

thanks again.

After seeing the last pic, I am still thinking 4.5 and think with some luck and the right range conditions that buck could impress you in the next year or two. But with that said, if you like him, take him.

Thank you djs! I'm not on this lease to shoot a 120" deer. I'm after bigger. That being said I hope he will make it through the season.

I think 4.5 and Will probably get better. If he doesn’t get anybody all that excited I say pass, especially if you are planning on a few years potentially on your new lease.
