Hi Grant! love watching your videos. I am located in central/northern New Hampshire. I just started to use trail cameras and got some pictures of a young doe accompanied by a fawn, and a seperate larger doe by itself. I was wondering if you can help me age this doe. Thanks Grant! sincerly, Jason Torsey


I typically place does in one of two age categories. These include 1.5 years old and 2 years old or older.

The larger doe in your pics appears to have well developed shoulders and hams and a pot belly. She’s certainly mature.  

Enjoy creation,
