We thought he was a 7 but got some more pics of this guy and saw a G3 we had missed. 3.5?

I would be more comfortable saying 2.5. No younger though

You think? I'm still saying 2.5 or older. I hate debating age this time of year because its twice as hard to be accurate as it is in late October. I just don't see it. Long legs

That said, I think this deer is most probably simply 3 1/2. \:D

\:D isn't that the truth!?!? As small of bodies there are at our place in Hickman, I'd put him at 2.5. Maybe we have an older of a deer population than I think ;\)

BWB, if you would (and if he's still around in the fall), please post pics of him in late October.

Ok, I'll definitely feel comfortable saying 3.5 or older on him now. Obviously more pics help. The first pic just makes him seem younger to me. This last pic, he does seem 3.5, but no older than a year for sure. May be a tweener ;\) . Thanks, BWB. Definitely helps

I feel more confident with 3 1/2 from those other pictures.

Yes JCDEERMAN, aging at this time of year is very difficult. I often have to change my opinion of a buck's age once velvet is off and the buck starts filling out for the rut. And even then, I only get 4 out of 5 right.

Thanks for the input guys. I never ask this because quite honestly with where we are with our management we have become more concerned about age than inches but just out of curiosity... score? I figure low 100's?
