3.5 possibly 4.5 but he doesn't have a big gut or a sway back yet.

Always helps if we know where youre located, that could be a 6 yr old alabama deer or a 3.5 year old northern deer. Im leaning towards 3.5.

Does it get cold in SE OK? Regardless he is a good deer. But I'd say 3 to 3.5

I also say about 3-3.5... give him another year, and see wat he does in size.

we have seen 8 diff bucks on camera this year (in about 1,800 acres) that are all 3.5 years of age. We are really working on letting these bucks age. I just hope everyone who hunts with us has the same mind set when one of these steps out because they can fool you real quick.

it doesnt get that cold here in SE Oklahoma. Not like it use to. But some years it can be around the 30's. Looks like this year it will be highs in the 60's and 50's.
