Grant I am a huge fan of your show and I see you age deer all the time and I was just wondering if you could age a few deer for me please and thank you. God Bless.

Mr. Wilson,

Thanks for sending these pictures and watching the show! We certainly appreciate your viewership! 

The buck in the first picture appears to be a yearling buck or 1.5 years of age.  This is his first set of visible antlers.  A few keynote characteristics would be skinny frame and neck.  His hinder quarters are also much larger than his front shoulders but this will change to the opposite as he ages. 

The does in second picture look to be 1.5 as well. They have similar characteristics as the buck does. Skinny shoulders, tight belly, and small frames. 

Thanks for posting!
