Question Will he get any bigger?

Will he get any bigger? And any ideas on how old he will be this season? What did he score last year? Thanks.

He looks to be in the 140s last year. He'll probably be bigger this year. Whether he gets more beam and tine length or whether he just gains mass is anyone's guess. I'd say he could be anywhere from the 140s to mid-150s this year.

Upper 130s to lower 140s last year. Probably 3.5 and a half last year

Who says that? I've never heard that before. A lot of QDM guys won't shoot a buck until he's 5.5 to 6.5 years old.

Unless they get shot or hit by a car, deer can easily hit 10 years old in optimum conditions. Of course this could be cut short by bad winters, poor food, disease, etc....

4 1/2 this year - high 140's, which is a little bigger than what I would have scored him in last years pic.
