Congrads!! Your buck is either a good 2.5 year old or a inferior 3.5 year old.
Its hard for me to tell which one since the buck is field dressed and not standing etc. But if I had to pic one, I would say your buck is 2.5 years of age. Pike

I'd guess maybe 3.5, but it is really hard to tell. A cross section tooth check would be the only way to tell. I don't think I would call him inferior, nice buck.

timber cruiser, using the word inferior was not meant as an insult. The deers body looks to be of a younger OH. buck, but if it is a 3.5 year old it is below average for a 3.5 year old OH. buck. That by no means, means that his buck was any eaiser to pattern, hunt or harvest etc. Or that he should be any less proud of his trophy. Pike
