How much more does this buck have the potential to grow? I was guessing 10 inches or so. I took this picture yesterday.

The deer's right side has a bit of a bulb still on it, he might grow a bit, but nothing much. I am no expert though, just an opinion.

Not bsk but........He'll definately grow none on mass and spread, probably none on the brows, a bit on the G2's/3's and his main beams will grow for sure.

10"? Depends how much more growin he has in him.

Main beams still are growing good (big bulbs). Each tine still has some little bulbs. Good deer

Probably just a couple more inches. He looks almost done, with only a little growth left on the main beams and last tines.

I was hoping he would put on more. Regardless of antler size I think he is old enough. I will know by fall.

3 to 4 years old. What do you think? And by the way, that is the shortest post I have seen you type! \:D

I would guess him to be at least 3 1/2, but he could be 5 1/2, possibly even a super-healthy early born 2 1/2.
About the worst time of year to accurately guess age.

I would feel confident with at least 3 from that picture, but more pictures from different angles would help.
