I'm new here, this is a hill country buck. The photos are from last week. Trying to get an age on it.

Anyone that can help, thanks.

Not 3.5 if those are callus’s on his knees. Give a few more month before you age him, unless you have history on him


Donate to TX Youth hunting program.... better to donate then to waste it in taxes

It would be better if you posted the original photos...not the cropped ones. The originals will not be as blurry and show a bit more detail....especially the first daytime photo. He looks to be at least 4 from these pics though.

He has a little sway in his back, at least 4.

His front will broaden over the next couple of months. His sternum seems to indicate older than 3 1/2

Chest, back, knees, gut. I’m thinking at least 4.5 but as above, need to see him in November.

First pic is blurry makes his face look old.
His back straight, no belly sag, briskett not protruding, slender face I bet he is no more than 3.5 and if he wasn't from the hill country I might go 2.5 . up

Forgot what time of the year it is, since it is July I should have said I believe he is no more than 3 years old.

I really like these type threads but ive been at the lease a few days so late getting on. As others have said its really tough to age this time of year. That doesnt mean dont post though cause we havent been having a lot of threads in deer hunting section lately so good to see. I would say 4ish. Nice Hill Country buck.

Agree with the ones that say 4 years.

For the .year? +.5 do you think he was born in January? I know we usually judge age in the Fall or Winter and this time of the year bucks are harder to age (fun to try though)

I completely agree.
I'd say at least 4.5 but could easily be older.

Technically he would not be 4.5, 5.5, etc until fall/winter.
