Question for you - I have a tough time aging bucks in the late summer before they fill out for the rut. Have you ever thought about putting something together to age bucks during that time of year? Is it even possible?


Yes, it's possible but much more difficult. Because the bucks are not filled out for the rut, you cannot use neck musculature as a guide. The very best criterion of buck age with summer body conformation is chest depth.


Thanks Bryan. I'm glad I'm not the only one that finds it difficult to age in the summertime!


I assign ages to bucks I get in summer photo censuses, but I end up changing many of them once I see the buck filled out near the rut.

Thank you for taking the time to put this information together. My son always asked me how I am able to tell him the age of deer we see. I will use this to show him. Thanks Again

Thanks, BSK, I just now saw this. I knew you would get around to redoing this since the original post lost it's pictures. It helps tremendously to have bucks of a known age to calibrate my eyes to.
