The importance of age

One of the world's best Whitetail photographers and outdoorsman, the late Charles Alsheimer, captured this pictorial of a buck that lived to be 12 years old.  The little spike was a Northeastern deer who turned into a slammer at nearly 170" at his peak when he was 6 1/2 years old....

Great article. Crazy how a 3-4" spike grew into a buck that carried a 160"-170" class rack from age 4.5 to 10 years old. You can see the jump in rack size from 3.5 to 4.5. That's why i love to see buck get older. The change they make in their prime can be very impressive. Not all bucks will grow like that as he said that buck made the biggest jump is size he has ever seen. Thanks

I let this buck walk during winter bow, he was a 120" 3.5 year old 8 pointer.  It was a gamble,  but as luck would have it we crossed paths the following October.
