I would love for you to age the bucks in trail cams and pic under the title age quiz. Just interested in your opinions.

Then I would say they are all middle-aged bucks (2 1/2 or 3 1/2).

I'll take a look at them.
But my opinion may not be worth much --- hard for me to accurately age deer on the hoof in summer.

That would be my best "guess" as well.

On one hand we would advise ignoring the antlers in guessing age, but antlers can still be a useful clue in guessing ages on summertime bucks. IMO, in most instances, seeing the antlers could facilitate a better guess in separating yearling, 2 1/2's, and 3 1/2's on summertime pics.

For example, if I could see the antlers, I might change my guess on that top buck to a yearling and the bottom one to a 2 1/2. I might also change my best guess on the middle one to either 2 1/2 or 4 1/2.
