I live in Republic, but hunt in North Missouri. I’ve only hunted this farm two years and this is the first time I’ve had a camera up there. This guy looks like a shooter, but only if he’s mature. How old do you think he is?
I was raised just west of Republic! There were VERY few deer there when I was a child.
There doesn’t appear to be much sag in the buck’s back or belly. His shoulders and hams don’t appear fully developed. His neck merges with his chest above his brisket. I estimate this buck to be three years old. He’s a dandy!
