BSK, I'm hoping I get the chance to see him up close and personal this weekend!

Waaaaay too much neck in late September to be only 2 1/2. I'm going with 3 1/2.


BSK, wouldn't you say that his neck just looks so much bigger in pic 2 because he is so much closer to the camera? You can't really see his neck in pic 1 to have a good reference, but his body looks rather small in both pics, which would make his neck look that much bigger.

I'm obviously no expert, but I'd say 2.5.

Honestly, those two pictures look so different, I was absolutely convinced those were two different bucks. But I think it is just camera angle. That's why I say I try to never make a definitive age estimate with only a picture or two to work from. I would prefer dozens of pictures from every angle.

The first picture screams 2 1/2. The second picture screams late-September body conformation of a 3 1/2. More pictures would be a big help. The second picture may be purely a unique camera angle thing.

I'd agree with bsk... hard to believe it's the same deer. the top pic def looks 2.5... just not enough development in the hams at all to be 3.5.

The bottom pic looks like a 3.5 y/o to me as well.

overall, I'd tend to lean more toward 2.5, since I could stretch the bottom pic down to a 2.5 y/o deer, but no way I could up-age the top pic to 3.5

BSK looks like you may have been right.
