Ok I know you guys see this alot and I know its hard to age deer this time of the year but what do you think these two bucks would age at?

This is the buck tha I think has a hurt front leg if you look at the pictures but he don't look to be that old

I think that first buck has some serious age on him, his head is HUGE and so is his body.

The 2nd one look 3 to me, he has the racehorse look.

Last buck definitely has something going on with his passengers side front leg.

Your right it is kinda hard to tell this time of year, but I'll take a stab and say 3.5-4.5 in the first set and 1.5 in the last photo. The first one is a respectable deer for our area. Good luck with him this fall. :)

The 8pt I have seen and he has a bad limp but from the pictures I can't tell anything is wrong anywhere.

There is definitely something wrong with that leg...

Ok I been looking all the pictures I have of the 8pt and if you will look at the second picture from the top does it look like there is something wrong with his shoulder?

First one, at least 3.5

Second one could be 1.5 but leaning towards 2.5.

Deer are very resilient. Don't loose sleep over what they look like. The will jump thru a wall to get to a hot doe...even with a bum leg.

ps...I don't think it is a shoulder problem...looks funny in that lone pic.

I have put this camera on video mode so I hope to see if this is the buck that was limping and see if we can tell why he is limping from the vidoe.
