    We've been getting pictures of this younger deer starting this year. You can see his right side has some extra stuff going on there and looks to be actually pretty young. We have about 500 acres we manage and he's got a pass for this season and probably next season. We've got a pretty good guess on age, but just looking for some extra input! I threw in a picture of an old 10 point we have just to show the difference in length of the body,belly and the brisket. Thanks guys! 2016 YOUNG BUCK.jpg 2016 OLD TEN.jpg

    That's a good lookin young deer. I agree with jensen, between 2 and 3. he has some serious potential if you can let him grow a couple more years.
