I'd be particularly interested in finding out this deer's age. Based on anecdotal evidence, don't think he was fully mature, which makes his score all the more impressive.


Ill let you know, he's trying to get a look at jaw bone

Not only "look", I'd send that one's teeth off to a lab for analysis, then off to a different lab to double-check! \:D

Imagine if this buck turned out to be only 4 1/2 years old, which would mean he had great potential to become significantly more massive and higher-scoring at 5 1/2.

My gut feeling is this buck is at least 4 1/2, but would be nice to know his true age. IMO, MOST bucks in TN approaching the potential of this one are actually killed when they're 2 1/2, scoring in the 110 to 130 range, and we never see anything close to their true potential should they live to 4 1/2 or older and become something like this magnificent Ft. Campbell buck. Similar was said about the Milo Hansen buck which was found to be only 3 1/2 yrs old.
