Love the site and following you on social media. (We share the same first name!) Your tactics have helped me be wildy successful for the past two years. I was hoping you could help me identify the age of a deer that has just showed up on our hunting property. It’s appears to be and older deer but his back appears to be fairly flat though his neck merges with his chest.


That’s a cool looking buck!  It appears his neck merges with his chest at his brisket and that his shoulders are well developed.  HIs antler bases have a larger diameter than his eyes.  These are all indicators of a mature buck.  I estimate the buck is four years old or older and would be on my wish list!

Enjoy creation,
