Look at the hind quarters. He is as wide in the butt as the front. Race horse look is not on that buck. Wait until rut he is going to be impressive.

ETD, that's one nice buck you have there. I'll join the majority and say he's 4.5. I think another year would give him a bit more of a roman nose and a little more fill out in the belly. That would make a great mount! The 12 pt in PA has not been captured on cam yet. I hope he is still in our area first week of Nov.

Last Year --> Year Before


In the 2006 Pic, I gotta say he looks more like a 3.5 yo buck which would make him 4.5 yars old last year and 5.5 this year.
Also, a 2.5 year old buck will most likey have a small to medium set of antlers where at 3.5 will have med to large antlers. I would say in the 2006 pic he has a med - large set, I don't believe they are small - med sized.
So now (especially) after seeing your "thru the years pics" I'm convinced more now than before this deer is clearly 5-1/2 years old.

It could be a coin toss. I did think all pics were of this year. I don't know Texas deer but for Maryland here he would be 4 1/2. In any case ETD he would make a proud addition to your wall. Send us your best pose with him in your hand.
