Default I think this fella is looking for love?

What yall think?

I am having a hard time telling myself to let him walk........ but he may he 120s next year with my new planting plan! I just do not think I would put him on the wall, and if thats the case, I can not pull the trigger. Think I need to put eyes on him and decide, lol

The last picture is the one I plan to hold out for. Pretty sure he will he in the 1 teens. But he has a split brow tine that is pretty cool!

Unless that pic is deceiving, that first buck doesn’t look young to me. I would say 3 1/2-4 1/2, his chest is as low as his belly and flat across the back. He is definitely cruising and tarsals are dark

Each pic kind of shows a different side of him, but Iíll stick with my original guess. His neck is ďdisappearingĒ and chest is filling out into the neck.

Iím no expert but a young deer always has a longer neck and chest isnít as filled out, my $.02

His horns donít match the body

Here is a good example, Iíve had this deer on camera for 3 seasons now, and he was a 5 point the first year. This deer is a minimum of 4 1/2

I’d say between 100 and 110. A great deer in Brooklyn.

Take him out so a bigger one will fill his spot....or let him walk so he can grow as big as your boy's bucks got.....Looks like he's setup residence at your place....
