    I've only been deer hunting 3 years and have only seen one other buck other than the ones attached. It was a young buck with 2 points on the left side and a jacked up, stubby antler on the right similar to the deer in the attached picture. I shot it and haven't seen another buck since.
    I moved my camera and put out some of the Sugar Beet attractant stuff and got these pictures in less than 24 hours...coincidence???
    I'm not really a trophy hunter. I deer hunt because I'm over run with them and they completely ravage my garden every year, but I must admit, after taking several does the past 3 years it's exciting to see some horns!!!

    On to the question, the biggest deer in the pictures, I know it's incredibly hard to score from this picture but it's all I have. After seeing you guys score other deer on this site, how does this one stack up (age/score)?

    I would tend to agree. One looks decent but none over 3 years old.

    I agree with the other 2 post. I would let them go another year, maybe 2.. Good luck to you! Might see a hoss when rut comes and they start chasing hard!

    I would guess that the 2 smaller bucks are both 1.5. The other deer is hard to tell for sure, but maybe 3.5. I would guess he would score between 100-110 maybe.
