    What age stands out on body & face??? Cover up rack with finger. U would say YOUNG- right?
    He’s Seven years old. Seen him for last 5 years. This is why summer pics - u need a whole lot of em and really need to see in fall/rut and it’s STILL hard & very easy to be off by a couple years if you do not have history. Had I ONLY had these pics- would say “4 year old” maybe.....

    Yep, I find it's hard to age them unless I have history and even then it's easy for me to be off by a year.

    Same thing could of been said with this one. These are pictures a friend sent me last year. My thoughts were it was a young buck with huge potential. It was killed a few weeks later and it was definitely an old brute of a deer.[​IMG][​IMG]

    It’s fun to try and guess the age of deer. I don’t do it publicly but in reality if I haven’t attended all of his birthdays ( pics for history) it still only a guess!
    Sweet looking buck Skip!!

    He looks like the runt of the litter with an attitude! Aging deer isn't always easy.....

    Wow, very interesting. The longer I hunt deer, the more I find that I know less than I think. Just like that kid in middle school who could grow a beard, or the balding high schooler, always gonna be outliers.
