Default how old and what would these guys score?

These are the two only two bucks, beside a fork horn, that I have seen on my little bit of timber. What do you think they would score and how old? I'm new to bow hunting and need a little help. Also, would you shoot or would you pass and see about next year? Here are three pics of the first one.

Here is the pic of the second one. I think there different ones because this one's brow tines are much taller.

I'd say the first buck is around 90 inches gross and a younger deer, possibly a big 1 1/2 or a smaller 2 1/2. The second is probably around 110 inches gross and either a decent 2 1/2 or a smaller 3 1/2. They both have good potential, so letting them grow another year or two would be a good choice, but if they're the only two bucks in your area you're seeing then I'd take the bigger one. Every area is different, it's hard to ask others to tell you if you should take them or not. If you'd be proud of the animal then take him, if not let him grow!

I also agree with you guys. Good 2 1/2 with nice potential.

Both are shooters to me. I have been bow hunting for almost 10 yrs. All my life with guns. I'd shoot 'em. If you've never killed a deer then I think those are both trophys to be proud of. Hell even if you have killed one. You have to make the call ultimately though.

i would wait and next year you will have a nice trophy, but if there is a lot of pressure there and you think it will get shot i'd take him.
