Judging early season nubs

Recommended Posts

So I got access to a new piece of land this year. Set up a few cams and it seems I’ve found a honey hole. Is it possible to tell what a buck will be from their early season nubs?

Those bases look solid, I bet he’s 2.5 or better

That’s common sense. But I only talk about deer in their hunting season, so In this instance he’s 2.5 on 10/1

Here is one I got last week. I have a feeling he's going to be a whopper with this much early growth. I hope he doesn't stray to far away.

I had one in the field yesterday that had growth out to the tips of his ears with a beginning belly sag. That guy definitely peeked my interest.
