Great Info BSK
I think this guy was the biggest neck & bodied deer I had to drag out of the woods. His ears look like Muleys.

Skynimrod,

THAT'S a mature buck! Love that neck!

Here's the oldest buck I've ever killed. He is most likely 6 1/2 or 7 1/2. I honestly never took a serious look at his antlers (other than knowing he had them) before deciding to shoot. All I saw was his huge neck coming straight at me. That's all I needed to see!

HUNTFUN07,

Too bad he broke off the matching drop tine on the other side before I killed him. But the droptine does give the buck a lot of character.

But he's also one of my favorite examples of why hunters shouldn't expect all mature bucks to have trophy-class antlers. This buck is truly mature, yet minus the droptine, his basic frame only grosses 112. He wasn't any bigger the previous year (I have trail-cam pictures of him).

Nice Buck BSK! I noted in both pics they also seem to have big brown brow lumps on the skull plate.
Your right about The Big Boys standing out with no doubt they are Mature. Small ELK almost with wrestlers necks. I been chasing a big boy the last few years that sounds almost like a horse blowing/breathing sometimes. One smart SOB.

Here is a good example of antlers and age. Both Mature but the one on the right was a lot bigger bodied than the top left, and older I believe. Notice the large brown brow.
These are Wa. state bucks taken from the exact same area.
