Wow, guys I definitely have some age studying to do as I would not have imagined he was that old. Maybe I can down me a big Mountain Buck here like ol' String Music. We do have a couple places that are fortunately off limits just by the natural lay of the terrain, but something I need to be more serious about indeed.

At least 4 1/2. Might be 5 1/2.

Excellent, I was hoping you might chime in. Well, just goes to show like you have said...you can't go by the antlers. He's a trophy to me for a lot of reasons but doesn't sport a trophy rack to some guys on here I'm sure. I'd be thrilled to take him personally.

I would be thrilled to take ANY mature buck, even if both antlers were broken off!

Couldn't agree more. I used to not think that way earlier in my hunting career.

I didn't see the second deer in the picture, but he is displaying some dominance for sure. He's ears looked pinned back, and his neck looks a little swollen.

I believe he would be a nice trophy for a lot of folks. He would be for me also, as i don't see a lot of bucks this size. The only thing i see he could be lacking in is his mass. Maybe if mass is a concern for you, might not be, you could put out several mineral locations to help future bucks produce heavier racks. I know a personal friend of mine that puts out mineral lick locations that he mixes into the ground. Those deer have those spots tore up to the size of a truck hood or bigger and have it dug out pretty deep.
