Age anyone?

Postby BIG 8 » Thu Oct 27, 2011 6:16 pm

I've got a couple different pics of this buck but he never gives me a really good look at his body so I could use some help. Thanks

These are the best "body" pics I got of him.

My very un-expert opinion would be at least 3 1/2, maybe 4 1/2... Looks like he's got some decent mass on his rack... Looks like he's beginning to get a sag to his belly, but his back looks nice and straight still.... shooter buck in my opinion

I would second Deebz's observations, but would lean more towards 2 1/2. IMHO
