Old enough and enough on score to put an arrow or bullet into his vitals.

Was thinking four initially, but then seeing the pic of the other deer together makes me think another year or two.

Hard to say this time of year but I'd say 5. Score is impossible to say until he finishes out. He looks like he's on his way to 160s maybe........

I always like seeing these threads no matter what time of year but its definitely hard to tell much on either age or score. I would throw out 5 and maybe finish out 170s. What part of the world is that?

As far as an age goes I had him at mature(5+) when I first looked at the photos. One he looks 4 in and the rest older. He has the amount of tell tale staining on his hocks of a mature deer for this time of the year. Some width in between his front shoulders in the brisket also make him 4 or older. He is a tall and lanky buck that never look their age until just before the rut. Score wise, he appears to have about 60" of tines on July 21st with a lot of growth left...+ or - 30 days left. The velvet is still dark from blood flow so he has some growth left. That should put him over 150 now and larger when he sheds his velvet. I would not hesitate to shoot him if I was on a lease or acreage that was on the smaller side.

Thanks for all the replies. This is on my place in Upshur county. I have about 15 bucks coming to this feeder but this guy is by far the biggest. There are 3 more that will get your attention. I'll post pics of them when I get a chance. My granddaughter says I cant shoot any of them but we may have to reach an agreement on this one.
