Lets say he is 3.5 plus. Then back to my question of is this deer ever going to be more than a 4pt? Yes, I realize its impossible to know if he doesn't get another year to grow but is it possible that this IS his potential? In other words could he go from what he is now to something much larger from an antler standpoint? Even though its a good possibility he's had a 4pt rack his whole life.

If he is 3 1/2 (and I seriously doubt he is older than 3 1/2), it's possible he could add more antler points. But it is also possible that a big fork is all he is going to be.

Here's a 3 1/2 that was just a big 6:




Yet he turned into a very "normal" 120-class 8 at 4 1/2:

Thanks for everyone's input! Hopefully get to see him up close this weekend or at least some better pics when we pull our camera's. Also just read your article in the October issue of Field and Stream BSK. For those that haven't seen its a great read on his 10yr study of rubs in relation to terrain and vegetation features. Very insightful!

I typically do not purchase/read F&S, but may have to hunt this copy down. Thanks for the suggestion.

I didn't write the article. I was just interviewed for the article.

After looking at different pics we now think this deer isn't a 4pt. We think its the 7pt I took opening morning. The pic at the top of this thread is the only one we have of this deer from his right side. We think his left G3 is blocked by his right G2. Same length of main beams...same color. Thoughts?
