Dr. Woods,

I was wondering if you could give me your estimate of this buck’s age. The deer is from South Carolina.


This buck’s neck merges with his chest above his brisket.  In the first picture his shoulders and hams don’t appear fully developed and his back and belly don’t sag.  I estimate this buck to be three years old.

Enjoy creation,
