Guys, I'm from upstate NY - not exactly the land of monster bucks. If this deerwalks by my stand the last thing I would be thinking about is what he might look like next year.

I see him as at least 4.5. Look at the slope in his back. I really don't care I would still shoot him
Germ, there appears to be a slope in his back because he is standing in the hole from my mineral lick.

This is a great discusion topic. I personally believe this deer is 4.5 years old at most. Im all about QDM and everything and i can pass up a 3.5 140 or even better but this deer would be my biggest deer ever.

Luckily im the ONLY person who will be able to hunt this buck (unless he travels a long distance) so most likely this year the only person that will be able to harvest this buck will be me (or anyone i bring with me to hunt). Of course theres natural causes of death, poaching and cars, but if i dont get a crack at him and he survives these other obstacles he truely could be a recordbook deer in a year or two.

Only time will tell! All i know is that hes on my list of shooters this year regardless of age
Nice reply, and good position to be in. Hunt him hard this year, if it don't pan out, you may be stuck chasing him next year.

Man, that deer looks like a 4 1/2 to me.

No questions asked.
