I would lure him into the barn and make a pet out of him.

What a fantastic deer!

Tough one here for me to age as he looks so different body wise in the different pics.
I'd call him 5 in one pic but in the other 3 pictures he certainly looks 6 or older.

Please ground check him and let us know how hold his teeth say! grin

It is ALMOST impossible to learn to age deer from photos. The only way to get any good at all is to study as many live deer as possible....then harvest them and age them...adjusting your estimates of their appearance/age with the knowledge from the tooth-determined age. This is the PERFECT deer to start that process...he is big...has the big fork on the right G2 so you can't confuse it with another deer...and he clearly has enough age to be a harvestable deer on almost any place. Keep a folder with his photos....he will look VERY different leading into the rut....during the rut...and post rut and you need to be able to judge all of those age scenarios. Good luck and share the photos when you shoot him!!!!!!

Very telling. 6.5Min but more like 7.5. His [censored] I’d degenerative(this time of year it would be plump with fat) knees highly scared, and skin is very loose.

Straight hit lister, great deer hope you get him


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

Without a doubt 6.5 or more.

If he is coming in this regular I'd think he is certainly a 'killable' deer!
Sneak in there and get him opening day!!!

A hell of a buck for sure!
