I know that this is not the best picture to judge by but how old would you say this deer looks to be,
Just downloaded 512 pics off the game camera and this is by far the oldest looking deer and probably the only shooter (only 100 acre low fence). I was thinking 4 1/2 to 5 and probably a 7 point?


Was thinking this by the shortened triangle shape nose, thick neck and body, darker horn color? Am I on the right track?

Deer has swollen neck, which means he is at least 3. He has a tight midsection, meaning no more than 4. His chect appears deeper than his belly, and his rear looks like it has some filling out to do, I would judge him at 3.5 based on those observations. He could be four, but I don't see him any older.

Looks 4.5 to me, filled out a little too much for a 3.5, just my .02.
Ditto that. 512 pics sounds like you have some deer in the area or alot of pics of the same ones. Even on 100 acres you will be surprised what might show up when they start running does...

Good luck

512 pics, yes there was a lot of pics of the same deer but probably 15 dif. bucks. But this was the only one that had any size to him. Maybe have 7 or 8 dif. spikes and 3 pointers. a few 4's and 6's, one small 8 and a 10 that is wide enough to be legal but very young.

When i went out ther to get the pics i parked my truck right by the feeder had my laptop on the hood and transfering the images and i had a doe walk up to about 15 yards, stand there and wait for me to leave so that she could get back under the feerder...haha
