Dr. Woods,

This buck showed up on my cameras the other day and I just wanted to double check with you on his age.


In the second and third picture it appears the buck has a swayed back and potbelly.  His neck clearly merges with his chest at his brisket and his shoulder and ham are well developed.  These are all indicators of a mature deer. I estimate this buck is four years old or older. He’d be on my wishlist! 

Enjoy creation,
