Looks mature to me as well. Better get him before that messed up point breaks off. I had one similar to that point last season and it broke off just prior to bow season.

The other deer in the second picture interest me more!

Thanks for the advice, this is only my second year running cameras and feeders. Hopefully one good one will stick around for the season. Might have to start practicing with the bow..

This.

As to the first, he looks younger rather than older to me. I'd say 4ish. Hard pics to judge from

I agree with this. I peg that deer at 4-4.5 but the other one could be a year older. Would be hard to pass up the one in question if that point is still there come deer season. That would make a cool mount.

That kicker was probably a wound and will not be on his antlers next year. If you want him with that kicker you better shoot him this year.

First one looks no older than 4, back to straight, no brisket sagging and normal size rump up

Some good looking deer, good luck with whatever you decide.

Tuff time of year and tuff pictures to go by, but they look middle aged to me at this point.

Any more pictures of the closest one to the cam in the second pic?

Also I know for me it helps to look at the whole uncropped image, to me zoomed in pictures exaggerate antler size and tend to mess with my thoughts aging deer.

Looks pretty old to me, look at his face and that sagging belly, I'd say 5+

4.5 maybe 5. Hard to judge this time of year. Agree that kicker appears to be from injury while in velvet and likely will be back to normal if survives to following year
