Finally starting to get pictures of shed bucks. Like to know guesses on how old you think this buck his.

I'd go 3.5 on him. I dont think he quite has the body weight to be fully mature, but those black tarsals make me think hes no youngster.

Keep in mind aging one today should be stated in terms of what we believe to be his age come Fall 2020, rather than "today".

And as always, right now is a terrible time to accurately age a buck in Tennessee.

I believe this buck is 4 1/2 or older.

Hope he can be tracked and new pics produced in late October.

To put another way, I believe this buck WAS 3 1/2 or older in November 2019.

At least 3.5. LBLman is probably right on.

I agree that he is likely 4yo. Great shoulder development on him
