Default How old do yall think.. need help

Im not to sure how old this buck is but I have never seen him on my land in MS but you can see he is a big deer but bad horns. I wish he would have come out a few hours later.

id say with that thick of a body, fat belly , the thick "muscley" looking shoulders, and that big neck AND that thick stout head i would say he is around 5.5 to 6 yeards old is my amature guess

Id say 5.5 years. His neck is starting to get some saggy skin. I wouldnt say he is on the decline yet. I just think his rack is bad. But still a huge buck.

I would guess 6 plus. Too bad he wasn't killed many years ago before he had a chance to pass his bad genetics on.
