    Need Help Aging This Deer!

    I got a few pictures of him, he doesnt have big head gear and is a little screwed up on his right side. His body is twice the size of other bucks I have on the farm. His face looks old like 4.5 but it's hard to tell, unfortunately I only have a few pics of him. Let me know what you think. and my girlfriend named him "Jerry" so let me know how old you think Jerry is!Click image for larger version.

    well I'll take a guess, he has longer legs and a slope to his body, but to be honest them pic's are not very good to be judging age or score

    but I will say just a good 2+ yrs old, or maybe 3 yr old with so so goings
    but really need better pic's to get a better idea, sorry if this is way off!
    but I need to really see side view on level ground and a good head shot for me to do better on age
    racks?? well a good clean view front and side helps a ton on scoring too!
    stabnding next to other deer can help on body size, but just saying he's bigger than other deer, can mean you have lots of young deer too, and not he is old
    I have that problem at my farm, a 3 yr old will look HUGE to the rest of the younger bucks doe's and fawns look like midget deer to a 3 yr old here!

    But a nice buck no matter what

    Enjoy your hunt- the long sit......... the cold.......the rain and snow......the peace and quiet, it may just be your last hunt........... you never know.
