Hello THF,

I've got two at the top of my list this year. One is a mainframe 12 that looks like he's trying to put on more points. The other is an 11 with what looks to be a split brow. The 11 looks 5+ to me and I think the 12 is maybe 4. I'm not good at aging. What say the forum on age and score?

The one closer to the feeder looks bigger bodied, whether that means older I can’t tell. Those pics are hard to get an age from.

Depending on what you are trying to get at, both may be “takeable” this year. Just depends what your goals are.

I don’t see a split brow in either of those deer tho, so not sure if you have other pics to show .

The 12 to me looks 5 and the 11, 5.5. Score, think the 11 will go more, longer point lengths, I see mid 140s on him and low 140s on the 12.

Same deer in pics 1 and 3. I have some other pics with them together that I need to dig up.

"The 12 to me looks 5 and the 11, 5.5"

How do bucks on the same ranch get born 6 months apart?.

They wouldn't be six months apart unless born to a doe fawn or doe didnt breed until her 3rd cycle. If born at normal time they would be almost 5.5 years old.

This bigger question is how do you tell a deer is 6 months older than another? That’s slicing some serious cheese there

I think it is, in the pic the OP posted today the “11” is looking at us and his right G2 is quite a bit shorter than his G3. To me the buck in the first 3 pics doesnt have as much difference in the G2 to G3
