How old is the buck?



He looks young to me but not sure if it is just the way he is standing. Head and neck look small.

Yes still in velvet taken North of St. Francisville off hwy. 967 where our family land is. The date is correct. I have other pics with this deer and another decent buck in that has no velvet.

Yall on that middle fork of Thompson Creek?

Is your paw in law the nice fella with the saw tooth oak tree by his shop in front of the house? We may have discussed this before

The last few years have been rough for me not sure about you guys. I only shoot mature bucks and was able to kill a nice one last year(not a wall hanger though) but that was the first one in the past 3 years. 4-5 years ago it was nothing for me to see 15-30 deer a hunt, now I am luck to see 5-10 not sure what has happened except maybe the people who hunt around us have decided to kill more.

I'm going to say 2 1/2 years old. At least, that is what my hope would be if I hunted that area.

Ive heard this same thing from just about everyone I know that hunts this parish. Added hunting pressure, hogs, predators, loss of habitat, etc could all be factors I guess. Biologist seem to agree since they changed the season around and stated that they wanted to decrease numbers of deer killed by 30% or something like that. Its certainly depressing
