Default AGE these bucks

Hey guys,

These pics were taken off our farm two weeks ago in SE Kansas. This is just three weeks of pics so looking to get more.

Would be a big help if you could help me age all these guys. Not much to work with here. One of the eight's looks older than the rest. Let me know what you all think!

Best of luck hunting this season!

These guys all look to be 2 1/2 or 3 1/2 to me but aging on the hoof is tough in person and even tougher from photos.

Just read an article from 2010 that said a study of professional deer biologists judged the ages from a group known-age deer. The pro's were right less than half the time when the deer was older than 1 1/2 or younger than 7 1/2

Looks like you're in for a good season though!
