Trying to figure out what Is so funny about that?
What groceries did they like
Just plain old mini marshmallows.
That your post says "another year". People always say another year and he'll be this or that, when in fact, another year may not do anything in regards to size. He may get bigger, he may stay the same, he may go backwards, we none know. I think he's a good deer now and doesn't need anything, other than shot.
Well if you go off of body size he looks to be no older than a 4 year old deer so I would say he has a lot of growing to do. I have a deer that I have pictures of for 3 years and he went from a 120 class deer to a 150s class deer! Ojibwa62 would probably agree. Just from what he has shared with me he is very knowledgeable about qdm and aging deer. I know others people have different ideas of trophy’s
He may or may not be 4 or younger. I just don't get into all that qdm stuff but I do like to "try" and age deer. Most biologists can't even age deer with a lower jaw bone let alone try to look at the body or mass on the rack. I killed a deer in Ohio that I'd guess to be in the upper 160's or lower 170's but I had no trail cam pictures of him or anything and don't know his age but he was very massive. My bunch, try to kill a respectable deer or does. My boys though, I let them pop spikes or whatever gets them excited. Anyway, that deer is a shooter for us right now is what I was talking about. To each their own, that's what makes it fun.
I would bet that the buck you are referring to was older then 3.5 years old.that's what it takes to get size is age.that number one.
I have no history with the buck pictured other then this year , if I had to guess from the many pics I have looking at his body before and after the rut , the way his neck joins his brisket , I also look at the bases he is 4.5 max might even be 3.5. I have pics of him, he looks closer to 3.5 in the early season pics. There are always exceptions to the rule, deer can and do have different body types just like people. The first 4 or so years of a bucks life they are building skeletal structure. Buck will often have their best racks at 6.5 ( how many live thst long) I really wish I had more broadside pics
