How old do you think this buck is I\’m thinking about 4


That’s a nice looking buck!  It’s very tough to estimate the age of bucks when they are quartering away from the camera. I can’t see where his neck merges with his chest or if his belly and back sag. It’s also helpful to know where the buck is from – the quality of habitat.  Just like humans, the bodies of deer living in areas of poor habitat age quicker than those living in better quality habitat.

Enjoy creation,
