I've seen a bunch of pics of this deer (if it's the one I'm thinking). You guys think a 4 year old neck looks like that in November?

I would say he’s possibly 3.5 but much more likely he’s 4.5 in that picture Brock putting him at 5.5 this season.JMHO

I also believe the sheds Jamie picked up could be that bucks sheds and his genes are of the IT variety.

This one really looks like Jamie’s sheds... you guys think this deer could be a 2 year old?
no way that deer is two and a half in that trailcam pic.

different photo of same antlers from January of 2021. those are the sheds from a 2 1/2 year old buck, imo. if this is the same deer, and it surely could be, it would make him 3 1/2 last November. A very studly 3 1/2, I would say. could be a real whooper this fall.

😁. No he won’t. According to one of the neighbors this deer was killed by a nonresident last year. It was the biggest deer he had on cam all year. The garhole farm actually living up to its name. 😁

That's deers a solid 3.5 in my book. Still kind of slender and not shaped like a tank yet. No way he put on those G2s as a 2.5 so I'm saying 3.5.
