Howdy EastTexasDroptine, first let me say I love all the pics you post, keep them coming...
There's only one way to age a Whitetail Deer accurately and that's by their teeth.
A deer can't be aged by it's weight, size, antlers or coloring.
So anything anyone says about a deers age without using their teeth to determine the age is merely a guess as to how old that particular deer is.
Here is a link if you're interested in seeing how a deer is aged by it's teeth.

Whitetail Ageing


My GUESS on your 10 pointer in the picture is 3 1/2 years old.

another thing is northern deer tend to get heavy coats and fat layers.but your feeding em so its a push.i would say thats a 21/2 to 3 yr old deer.like bruce said teeth are the only true test so let me shoot em and ill give ya the jaw bones:lol:

Nice rack but don't think it is an old buck either. I would say 3.5 tops it just doesn't seem to have the pot belly or muscle mass I would expect in an older buck.

Nice pics.

joel the signman 04-11-2008 09:42 AM

also look at the ears and the rack too small

Definitely worth letting grow another couple years. I also think around 3 now and a nice 3 at that could be reeal nice. Best of luck ! Great Pics! And remember to keep jaw bone when you do get him.:rolleyes:
