In your area he could be a 5yr old but for me the 5 and 7 yr olds look similar early before the rut. Pretty tight skinned for a 7 yr old though. He does not have very large or stained tarsal glands either..more of a 5 yr old. Not showing signs of callused knees or knobby knees that 7+ show either. He has a smooth back on top of the shoulders that a 5 yr old would have, a 7 yr old would show a "bull hump" more over his shoulders. He looks a little better than 135 to me...more upper 130's depending on spread. His beams look pretty long and spread looks a bit wider also. My first add up got 141 though.

No longer deer hunt. Do you call that an eight point or four point? I have a similar one in my man cave. Here you go. Arkansas white river buck.

Hard picture to age but I think his loose skin and butt shape puts him older at 7, but knees 5. Think he is mid 30’s

Need more pics for age but I'd have him on hit list regardless

Nice 8 bill, we have a 10 we've been watching since 3 and now 6 but this new one stood out as looking older. I'll try and get some more pics. That's why I asked because these new shows are cool to try and figure out. thanks

Different states call them different things. In texas that would be an 8 pt, but in Mississippi or Virginia it would be called a 4 pt. Same thing, different terminology


OP, thanks for posting. Anytime I can glean a little more knowledge from STX I appreciate it. Nice buck. Hope you get a chance at him

I'd say easily 135 and may hit 40.
Age wise he looks like a 5 or 6 year old to me albeit very large bodied.


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

I think the OP buck is a little shy on mass to hit 140, my guesstimate is 135.

I don't see him being a 7 yr. old.

Angle of pic is probably the worst that could be offered with respect to judging antler score, but I'd 'hazard' a guess at mid 30's.

A frontal and side view would be very helpful. Regardless, nice buck. up

I am not seeing the calluses but think that is just dark hair on his knees. I also am seeing him being much wider than he appears at this angle. I think he around 19" inside more or less....maybe even just over 20"...he appears to have a large space from ear tip to inside of mainbeam on this right side.
