I grabbed this picture from my trail cam Monday. Can you estimate the age of this buck by the picture? I’m thinking 4-5 yrs old. ( by the signs you say to look for on the show )
The buck in your picture appears to have a swayed back, pot-belly, and his chest sags below where his shoulders meets his legs. In addition, his shoulders and hams are very well developed. These are all indicators that the buck is four years old or older. He’d certainly be on my hit list!
I hope you have a great encounter with him!
