Hey Grant, this year I’m really focusing on killing a mature buck. I figure this deer to be 3 1/2 but would like an expert opinion!

Mr. Wick,

I believe this buck to be 3.5 years old.  He has some great characteristics to his body, however their is still room for him to grow into it.  His shoulders are still developing and but you can tell they are beginning to appear larger than his rear hams.  This will continue to happen with more time. His neck will merge directly into his shoulders making the bulk of his mass originate from his chest, legs, and shoulder region.   

Best wishes this season!
