    I think your real close there Mike on score form that angle of picture... Age is a hard one to judge on that deer. Looks pretty thick of a buck. I would say a mature deer, but to how old???? 4 1/2??? I've killed bucks that size around here in North Idaho and have found sheds from the bucks in the previous years.. So antler size really isnt a good enough judge. As for how much bigger that buck will be this year??? I would say pretty close on spread. Maybe a little bigger on mass and Tine length, but highly doubt any more frame points.
     
  6. I know I wish I had a side shot to getter a better idea of his profile to get a better idea of age. I'm thinking he only has about a 16-17" spread, but I bet those tines are about 10", I would guess 3.5 - 4.5 year old in mid 130's. Thanks for the input.

    Hard to say how long those mains are from the front....but they look good. If I needed to shoot right there I would call him at 135-140. Put the pin on him and let him walk. He is only 3 1/2 but has A LOT of potential....he needs two more years. Three really but he aint walkin in two, arrows are a flyin ;D.

    I would bet somewhere around 130. He looks like he has some pretty decend mass, a 3.5 or 4.5...not sure. Get him this year, and let us know!
     
  15. mid 30's ,3 1/2

    George The older I get, the better I was.

    I'll tell you one thing I'm positive about: he's one old assed deer to have survived that long in Pennsylvania.

    I'd say mid to high 130's at 4.5
     
  17. Your 100% correct on that one George, he's a smart one and was completely nocturnal last season as far as I know.

    127-130; 3.5 year old...he's got potential
     
  19. I would guess 3.5 and 130 gross.

    If he's only a 3.5, he might add 10 to 20 inches by this fall.
     
  20. 3.5 134 gross 130 to 128 net you will no the age if you get a pic of the buck this year from 2.5 to 3.5 horns get longer 3.5 to 4.5 mass gets biger horns do get longer but not big jump. but thats the deer in my area im a big shed hunter
