With all the glare on the picture it's hard to tell. I'd say no more than 3 1/2, but it looks like the 2 1/2 year old bucks my Father and I took this year.

The only way to really be sure is to get someone that knows how to check the teeth. Jim

ya around where I hunt this is a really nice buck. I believe he made it through the season also. I just had corn out this year for feeding deer but i plan on getting a food plot next year and hopefully make this guy a giant!!

he may be a 2 1/2 year old but he also could be a very good genetic 1 1/2 year old. I usually base an estimated age on body size because genetics don't alway allow for a large rack. Bodies are bigger the further North you go. The body on this buck does not look all that large to me.

Corn and a flood plot won't make him a Monster. But I hope he gets a lil bigger and you can bust him
