    I really struggle judging a deer's age on the hoof. I would really like to see an episode where Todd and Justin teach us (ME) what I should be looking for.

    Would anyone else like to see this??

    BHOD!!!!!

    Since Todd and I can never seem to agree on a deer's age I'm not sure how helpful it would be. :lol:

    What are you having trouble with exactly? In most cases it's pretty easy to tell 1 and 2 year olds, 3 year olds are easy to spot with a little training on what to look for, and from there on out IMO it's a bit of a crap shoot. Unless I have a lot of history with a deer in the form of trail cam pics and in-person sightings it gets hard to tell age at 4-5-6 with any sort of real accuracy.

    Yes I've noticed how you and Todd don't always agree on the age lol. I guess I'm not sure even what to look for.
