Hey Grant and team! About a week ago, we started getting pictures of this buck and I was curious on your opinion. I’m guessing this buck to be 3 years old. What are your thoughts?

Thanks, Carson Hyland


I enjoy getting pictures of bucks I wasn’t expecting.  Based on the pictures of this buck when he is broadside it appears his ham and shoulder aren’t fully developed.  His neck merges with his chest above his brisket and his chest doesn’t sag below where his shoulder meets his leg.  These are all indicators of a three year old buck.  I agree with your estimate.

Enjoy creation,
