Default Help me guess the age - Cam Buck?

Can you guys help me guess the age - The pictures are from the first week in November 2004 - We think he made it through the season without a confirmed sighting!





The last picture is another deer - we think - From January 2005. Any guesses on his age? Does anyone think it could be the same deer as the first 2 pictures? Our group is split.



Thanks - I look forward to what others think for age.

Im guessing 2 maybe 3 year old deer and i think and am pretty sure the third pic is a different buck because it only looks like it has 4 points on its right antler while in the first two pics it has 5.

The first deer I would say is a 1.5 - 2 year old deer.

Look at the brow tines on the second deer, no way could it be the same as the first buck.

I think the first buck could very possibly be a healthy 2 1/2 year buck, I have seen them in certain areas in PA @ 2 1/2 years that looked like that. I don't think he is older than 3 1/2 years though at most. The bottom pic is definately a different buck in my opinion, look at the placement of the browtine on the left......that also looks like a 3 1/2 year buck.

I'm gunna call the first one a healthy 2.5yr old and the second 3.5yr old. No way they are the same buck.

Old enough for me to put an arrow through their chest.

I am pretty much in agreement with the rest. 2.5 - 3.5 years old. There is no sagging belly or a swayed back that is common to older bucks.

Depending on your local genetics it could be different. I am just going by what they would appear to be in my local herd.

They look to be two different bucks for sure. They both look 2 1/2 years old to me as well.

For example this is a 2 1/2 year old.
