Guess his age


Recommended Posts

Just got my results back from Deerage.  Some know the story behind this guy, but here it is again. I wounded this buck in 2018 with my xbow but luckily had him in camera a few weeks later. Had some blood, called a dog, obviously to no avail. Last year, this 1x3 showed up on my camera and I had a feeling it was him. After several pictures, I saw his wound and knew it was the buck that I failed to seal the deal on,,,,easily my biggest buck to date. Due to the history I had with him, he was my target buck. On a day with a bad wind, I decided to take my climber and try to get him coming in from a staging area. Well, I guessed right. He came in 15 yards from me and had no idea I was there. This time, the  Matthews and Grim Reaper sealed the deal. Very proud of this deer, just a shame he isn't mounted like what he was when I first shot him. But,,,I'll take him just the way he is and the way it happened. Let's hear some age guesses.

6.5 or older.  Want to say 8.5  considering how much the rack declined.

Rack went screwy because of injury - getting hit far back with xbow bolt...


Larry - always figured 4.5 to 5.5 when you first hit it, so will go with 6.5 when you finished him off. 

Nothing spooks deer more than my stank…
