This is what I believe to be a 2 1/2 year old deer on my farm in Ohio, do you folks think that this deer has some future potential.

I think so. Looking at the body size (what you can see of it) it would almost lead me on to believe that he is 1.5 yr. old? Just an uneducated guess. But he has great length and height and I'd love to see him in a couple years. On a negative/nitpicking note, he's bea lot nicer if he had 3 on his left main beam as well. But who am I to complain 'bout an awesome young buck!

I do not intend to harvest this guy, just trying to set up a decent management program for the future. I seem to have a number young bucks w/ more points and the same age. Just wanted to see what you folks thought. Thanks for the replies.
