Not the greatest angle but guessing pretty old. -The year is wrong...need to fix next time I check the camera-

Really old or sick. He looks awfully thin.



A clear conscience is often the sign of a fuzzy memory.

Based on the appearance of his brisket and emaciated hips, I think he is way over the hill.

I agree. All of the other deer are fat and healthy. He must be 7+ is what I am thinking

flabby brisket, long snout (not roman nosed though) crown forehead, front hump shoulders makes me think old, but skinney legs and thin hind end leads me to think past prime and backslope heading down...but its still summer. He may fatten up for a real stud.

Looks like a seroma on that bucks brisket. Hard picture to age from with walking towards the camera. He has knobbing knees that is sometimes a sign of mature deer. He looks in pretty good flesh for this time of the year and more like a lot of the middle-aged bucks do here on my place. I have one buck with a larger seroma on his brisket also that is growing in size over the last month.
