Any thoughts on age? I don't pictures from any other angle. He's got a cool rack, that's for sure.

I see 4, maybe 5, but need more pics Big head, rump, and shoulders, he's def not 3. Skin on neck suggests possible age but his gut is tight. It may be a little easier to age him in a few more weeks. That is a cool rack, good luck!

I think he wants help determining the age of said buck not help with an "old" buck Hud

Interesting deer, i definitely like his head gear, not sure what i would think of him trying to nail down an age.

Both look either 5.5 or 6.5 to me


High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

Looks 4.5 to me but I also shot a deer last year I thought to be 4.5 and it turned out to be post mature and was still recovering from the rut.
