    I would guess him at 2 1/2 with good food and genes, 3 1/2 without.

    1/2 button buck
    1 1/2 spike, fork 6 if they're lucky

    How is it one careless cigarette can cause a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to light a campfire?

    Yes nice buck. I have always wondered as well about age. I have gone with 6months button buck, 1.5yr spike or fork and small dia. , 2.5 up to 8pnt but small dia and bucket type. 3.5 start to get some weight to the rack, more thickness to rack. My 10pnt this year I'm thinking 3.5yr, but I'm just guessing. I thought I had a nice deer until I got to the butchers and saw what he has been taking in. My big deer went to small average.
