Buck with potential

Recommended Posts

im guessing hes 2.5. If he makes it a year he will be a definite shooter next year for me. He would be a good one for my brother in law this year. Hes never shot one close to this guy. O and hes at a mock scrap me and my son made a few days ago.

Why can't he be 3.5? 

On a side note, too bad there isn't a simple and exact science to just pluck 1 tooth  and get a correct age

Based off the deer i see around here he just looks real thin in the antlers. I guess he coild be a 3.5 but generally they have pretty decent bases and mass.

I always hear mixed reviews about deerage.com lately. where they ask you to provide your estimate and people submit bucks but have sheds to prove the answer is not correct

Yes tooth wear isn't exact neither is body characteristics,  but cut a tooth and thin section it and there is no doubt. My big 8 I had done knowing from sheds it was at least 7.5 and it came back at 8.5.  Fortunately I was involved with a museum of science and had access to thin section a tooth.
