Any go on the age for this guy. Got many pics of him during the summer however he disappeared during the season. I am torn on his age especially for the area I am hunting in Anderson County. Killed an 2.5, 8 pt.in November with a similar rack,except longer tine length except for the the spread. I am thinking they could be related. The deer I shot had a 15 1/2" spread and this deer seems to be wider than that. However this deer's body looks to be bigger. The deer I killed weighed 120 lbs dressed. I have seen some very wierd genetics around this farm I hunt. Some coon hunters that hunt our land have seen him several times at night and say he is big. But of course you know how that goes. I hope he has made it through till next year.Again sorry for bad pics. Thanks for the input!

I was thinking 3.5 or 2.5. But was not sure. A few years ago I shot a 6 point that aged out at 4.5 years old. He dressed at 147 lbs. which is a big deer for my part of the county. Thats deer rack was thick but it seemed it would never raeach it potential.
