I wanted to wait to see what everyone thought of the other South Texas buck I posted.

This guy is probably a little easier to judge his age. Taken a couple days ago. Was just starting to chase some does. Your thoughts on age?

Body says 4.5-5.5 but horns aren't heavy like you'd expect from that age of deer.

One good reason you should not put much faith in the horns when aging deer grin

I would think a supremely well conditioned 4 1/2. There is some sway in his back and if his neck delved more into his brisket, I would say older. Just can't quite get there.

Show me a photo in a couple of weeks. If staining down his legs, he will prove to be older.

Tough call. Every deer I've seen(South of Bowie), has a body like that. Unusual year.


Without a sense of urgency, nothing ever happens.

I agree with you 100%.

Sure looks 4 to me but his hocks are pretty dark for sure already for south texas.


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

That is what I think. Prolly should go, his genetics suck.
