This guy improved significantly over last year. First photo was this august; 2nd photo was taken exactly a year prior in the same spot. Thoughts on age and score? I'm thinking 4.5 and 135. He has a 3-4" G4 on his right sight hidden from this angle. Childress County.

Looks to be a 3 yr old this year compared to what looks to be a 2 yr old last yr pic of him. I think he is more upper 130's to maybe 140 if he is a 5x4 with what looks like 2 NT pts. Lot of the score depends on how long the NT pts are and the G4 we can't see. Pretty buck.

I agree with upper 130's to 140 or so.

Different stances look different ages. First picture of your second post looks older, but several of the others he looks younger. Any other past history/photos of him?

Looking at all the photos, I would think he is at least 4 years old.

In this photo its proof enough to me that he is 4 this year. He is older than the deer in the back. The deer in the back is not a yearling in my opinion. So deer in the back is 2, he is at least 3, and that was last year.

Look at the top photo again...I would guess those are the same two buck in this years photo as in the photo you quoted..

Could be. I think he is still at least a year older than the other buck in the first picture too.

Obviously I don't have your experience, but that would be my opinion. To me, he doesn't look like a 2 year old in the picture I quoted.

I’m thinking 4-5 140ish, would let him grow another year if you can. Could turn into a monster at 5-6 or at least when his hind end drops down a little.
