    This was my first buck of the 2015 season.

    5 day after I shot the first one, I managed to shoot the really old buck on the left side of this picture. Taxidermist said his teeth were worn down to nothing and estimated him at 7.5+. I certainly think he was deteriorating on his antler potential.

    Congrats. Nice deer! Makes you wonder what that old boy's rack looked like in it's prime. Nice G2's, especially the right side. What's the length on that right one?

    Nice looking bucks. Is that a mule deer on the left, with the white face?

    Mukwonago19, I did not measure them simply in the fact that he won't score very well but he is one of my best bucks that I have gotten. I will put a tape measure on him and see what he is soon.

    Actually he is just a really old whitetail taken off the same property as the others. He looks completely different than the others on my wall.
