3 1/2?

1)Larger body, at 2 1/2 he would be near the size a doe.

2)Buck still has an arch in his back.

3)Neck still has clear definition where it connects to the body.

Just a guess - Hell if I know

If from a good gene location I would say 2.5 years old.  Just doesn't have that old buck look.  But what the heck do I know.   :rotflmao:

I got no special insights on his age.  He has a big body and I'd love to put it in my freezer.

But I have a different question...

If you were bow hunting, and that was your only shot, where would you place your pin?

Not sure where I'd put a pin, but if put an arrow right behind the front shoulder!! :sleazy: :rotflmao: :mooning:

According to that criteria, 3.5 must be 42 in people years.

With that said, I would agree with DE and say it's a 2.5'er.  :happy1:

I see a lot of similarities between the one above and the one I just got pictures of.  I would guess this guy is also 2.5 years old but I might just shoot him to get a closer look.  :rotflmao:
