Re: How old is this buck?

Racks dont give much accuracy as far as age goes. Only real way to age a deer "on the hoof" is by looking at body structures.

There is no "Catch and Release" in the world of hunting!!!!

At what year do they get that waddle under the jaw, and start growing the second set of antlers?

Shoot straight

I think it's a mount and could be just over 10 years old...maybe 15. Very good taxidermy work at any rate.

Based upon the hairline on the back of the neck it looks photoshopped.

Re: How old is this buck?

If it weren't for the "goiter," I'd say it was a mount. Based on the antlers, I'd say this is a young-ish deer. Most 3 year olds ought to be bigger than that -- assuming he hasn't gone hungry.

Look also at the base of the G2 on his right antler. This picture -- even if it's real -- has been tinkered with.

Anyway, based on his rack (which you can't base anything on) I give him 2, or maybe he's 3. Does the original poster know for sure?
