Default Age These Bucks

These are all bucks that survived hunting seasons on our property.

Buck 1 - this pic is from last year. Saw him the year before too.

Buck 2 - This pic is from two years ago. He survived that season but we haven't seen him since. Nobody got him last year.

Buck 3 - We've been watching this guy for years. This pic is two years old. I've seen this guy this year but no pic yet.

Buck 4 - This pic is from last year. This guy looks young but he looks like he could grow into a funky non-typical.

The 6 pointer and 8 pointer are mature. The 6 pointer especially so. But the two non-typicals look like they are still young.

You should see him this year. Last year he was still big-bodied but he was down to 5 points. One big paddle on one side instead of a fork. This year he looks like that picture but thicker and higher antlers. Tines are longer now too.

Some nice PA deer right there. I like the non-typical, think he will keep that third beam?

Nice buck Barnes, I like that big six point, especially if he's heavier and higher this year.

I think the buck will keep his third beam.

Here's the 6-pointer last year. He had a down year then. Also, a young buck that may be related to the buck in the original post.

I think the first one is at 3.5 or 4 years old, the second one is looking like 3 years old and the third one is in need of some lead at around 5 years old. The last one is still youngish but I would take him on a cull hunt not my yearly big un.

If I had my choice I would shoot 1 and 3 for record. They have spread their genes for several years. As for number 2 I would wait on him another year so he gets a larger body.

This is just my thoughts.
