    Here's an interesting one. This guy looks like he's been around a few years to me. Big bodied and fairly thick beams for a forkhorn. I'm used to seeing skinny, thin beamed forkhorns around our neck of the woods.

    P.S. I need to update the date on my trail cam by 10 years I see.

    Really? Again, used to seeing little bucks with skinny racks. Maybe he is 1.5. Will hopefully grow into a brute for our area!

    I could maybe see 2 1/2, he does have a bit of body size and if his mom was bred late that would put him a bit behind.

    Say started as a button, then spike now fork horn.

    Not sure if it works like that though :lol: I don't get to keep tabs on bucks and watch them grow.
