At what point do you expect a deer to have brow tines? If age how old does he need to be? Thanks Daniel

They can grow and lose them at any point. I had a 3yr old last year with only a single 1” browtine and this year he has two 4-5” browtines

Guess would be 99% will have brows by 2 yr.
Double AC always seems to know his stuff so I don’t doubt him but what he said above I have never witnessed close to that change.


At some point in life its time to quit chasing the pot of gold and just enjoy the rainbow. FR

I’ll post the pics once I get back to the ranch computer. Don’t have on my phone as he isn’t a shooter this year. He was a 3 year old 7pt with a single 1” browtine, but he had very good time length for a 3 year old and was very active in an area of the ranch that didn’t have a lot of homebody deer within that age class. This year as a 4yr old he grew two very respectable browtines and is now a mainframe 9pt with kickers coming off both g2s.

That example is definitely not the norm as and I agree you will usually know the general browtine trend by age two or three, but it is enough for me to say if I like the other traits about the deer I won’t shoot him just because he doesn’t have brows. There have to be multiple traits I don’t like about a buck and I’ve got to be in a good place with my does for me to shoot before he’s 5

Really agree with your last paragraph. No ONE antler trait ruins a deer and no ONE trait makes a deer.

Took a while for me to get back to the ranch computer. Buck I referenced below and I am 100% confident these are the same deer:

3.5 - Date is wrong in the pic, I know
