    Anyone have any guesses? This is a mountain wv deer - no agriculture, no food plots. Currently at 4200 ft in elevation. The body size says older deer, but just want to confirm. 20160906_195410.jpg

    Looks to be (from what can be seen) at least a 3 year old and probably a 4 year old.

    Great deer and I would be happy to age him for you and I can promise perfect accuracy.... I'll just need to hunt your land and verify that he is not allergic to carbon via a 28.5 inch injection

    Black, bulbous nose, thick neck, big chest - looks like a 4.5 or older to me.

    From the size of that body and being a WV mountain deer, he is at least 4.5 yo. Personally it think it's 6 or 7.
