    I have this deer coming in almost every night, and he sometimes stays in the bait until i run him out when i go in to hunt... Whats your guess on the age and his score. To me he looks like no older than 3.5, and maybe mid 120's low 130's. What do yall think?

    I would say you are on with age but I would say 120-125 at the most.
     

  3. Not sure on age but I don't think it will get over 115 on the score. Not enough mass and tines to make it much higher than that

    112" and probably 2.5....

    But the age could go either way.

    The pictures aren't really enough to get an idea of back and belly sag and he appears sort of young facially and body size, but I've also seen really old bucks that start to look skinny and young again. They typically have declining racks with a little more character and junk...like his.

    Who knows though. If it'll make you smile, shoot it! ;)

    Can't shoot him this year. Hopefully he makes it another 2 days til season ends. I'm gonna keep baiting through shed season. Will love to see what he turns into next year. I'd like to see if the hole in his horn is genetic or if it was caused while he was in velvet.
