aging a deer
September 26, 2011 at 8:01pm
as noted by viper, the belly sag is much like us older fellas.lol. the older we get the more our belly sags, so with age the buck's belly will too. also I look at his shoulder to ham ratio, the older they get, the more propotionate they will look together. a fully mature deer's shoulder will look as big as the ham. If you watch shows like the bucks of tecomate you will notice it more when there are several deer together.(or look at some of the bachelor pics on this site and notice the differences)It would be nice to give him two years, but he would be hard to pass up.
