I'm hoping to get expert opinions on the age of this buck. I think he is 3-1/2 in really good shape. Maybe 4 but I am not sure. There deer on this place are in better shape than usual due to timely rain this year.

You're right, I was talking about the top one, higher scoring buck being 3-4 yo.

I just realized that there are two different bucks. The one at night has a G-4 on the left. The one in daylight does not.

If I'm not hunting something I must be dead.

Both look middle aged to me

3.5 & 4.5


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

Question for you guys...Why does everyone always throw in a .5 when aging? 95% of the time people guess 3.5, 4.5, but rarely do they say 3 or 4. I have always wondered why people age by half-years.

A lot of people use the half year.
I primarily use the single digit.
If I tell someone my age, I don’t use the half.

The same reason deer are scored 4/8” instead of 1/2”. 3 year old deer.
