    Nice buck....I like that wide glide he's got going on. Very nice overall display on the corner wall. All you need now is a flying turkey mount.

    Age.........4 1/2

    GT - He's gotta go in the corner. I don't currently have any other place in my bar room.
    Viper - - Flying on the wall is my next one. those dang full mounts are a fortune though.

    LOL NICE!!!
    Ok here's what 'I' would do..That footrest there?..Toss it out that window behind ya there...Brake you off a Broom handle, Sharpin 1 end and Jam it into the Hide/Form and place it in a 5 gallon Bucket, Concrete around it and sit it right where that foot-rest was LOL....Nice Man cave you got going on there Buddy..I believe everyone that hunts, never has enough room. A few years ago when we painted and I decided to take what is my Profile pic here, Everyone was saying...Wow it looks so much bigger in here LOL...Oh Well, they are all back in here now LOL

    Hello
    When do we get to let everybody know I was right about the age? lol

    AND the AGE is......
    Well believe it or not, this deer was aged at 2.5 years. I guess a killer protein diet and great genetics are to blame. Not that I would have let him get to his prime, but would have loved to see it!!

    yup
    Well darn - I almost said 3 or younger but decided to give him the benefit of the doubt. lol
    I went back and looked at your pic w/ him before I guessed. He looked like a fairly 'young' deer to me based on his color and facial features. The 'older' deer I've seen tend to have a longer snout and it is much more grey lookin'.
    Great buck either way. Maybe you'll find his daddy this coming season. :)

    ??????AMAZING
    2.5??? I just can't believe that!!! That would mean not counting his first year as a Button head, that this was only His second Rack??? With genes like that in this area, I would wait another 4 years before I pulled the Trigger again LOL...You sure that was the Correct Jaw-Bone?...That just floors me Buddy....2.5?...I Guess...WOW!! is about all I can Say

    GT,
    I'm right there with you. When my taxidermist asked in a funny way.....If I wanted to know the age, I knew something was bogus. I was floored as well. As I mentioned, I strive to manage my herd, however, in NC, you just don't let a deer like this walk, and I am glad I didn't.

    A Trophy
    You should be Glad you didn't let him walk but man....Only 2.5 years old? That has got to have your Mind spinning about 'What If......?' I'm like you though...If I had seen this Buck....Well you know......LOL...Congrats again Man, He is AWESOME!!!!!

    Who's your taxidermist??? Maybe he picked up a Jaw Bone from 1 of my 3 pointers from years past LMBO...I'm J/K man, Again Congrats!!!!

    For sure
    He's definitely got wall appeal. I don't know any hunters that would have passed on him. Makes me wonder what else you might have roaming your woods. Your buck reminds me of some of those Texas bucks I see on TV. Did you have him on cam?

    No offense but that buck is not 2.5. I had my neighbor send off a jaw bone of a 9 pointer I had on film. The dnr said it was 2.5 and i had 4 years of trail cams pics of it. I am just saying it is just a guess with the teeth/jaw bone. Now I will say that is a good looking buck and would be thrilled. Congrats on the buck.
