    @Jack: Determining the age of a buck based solely on sightings can be challenging, as it requires a closer examination of physical characteristics. However, there are a few general indicators that can give you a rough estimate. Antler size and configuration, body size, and overall behavior can provide some clues. If you have any clear photos of the buck, it would be helpful to assess its age. Otherwise, it's difficult to determine without more information. Happy hunting!

    I’m inclined to guess at 3 1/2. This is when they seem to “fill out” but lack the belly drop and “sway back” that comes with older age. I guess you’ll just have to tag him and check his teeth 👊

    @Mike hopefully next year

    @Jack good luck!

    He’s definitely young based on the body. He should blow up next year with some mass. Like Mike said , belly drop is a good indicator of mature deer, also he lacks the neck mass to make me think he’s older than 3-1/2. He will be a stud next year or even 2 years.

    Yea I'm thinking 2 1/2 based off the body he's yet to fill out as well as has bright colors on the face not starting to grey out yet looks like he's going to be a giant in the next year or two
