Default Age this deer

Central Alabama Crenshaw co. We have been watching this deer for two years. We will shoot him if we get a chance. We have been feeding high protein foods and minerals for 3 years now all year long. How old do yall think he is? First pic is November last year. Second pic was 2 days ago.

At least 2...JK, he looks pretty filled out to me, I'd say 4yo, maybe more

He's at least 4 1/2. You don't get that kind of body shape younger than that. Definitely deserves a bullet.

Yep. I about got him figured out. Going to let the pre rut start and the rest of the leaves get off the trees and it's going to be game on.

I'm thinking they are 2 different deer. Hard to tell with the micro pics and no identifying marks on the deer to be certain. Maybe you know an identifying mark to be sure it's the same deer?
But as it is, I'd say 1st pic is about a 5-5.5 yo deer and the 2nd pic looks to be a 3-3.5 yo. There is a lot of weight difference in the 2 pics, 1st pic 11-2018 is heavy, 2d pic 12-2019 is big, but not as huge.

You may be right. Brow tines are different.
