Finally seeing a nice buck or two on the place. A bigger/heavier pale antlered 10 point and this chocolate topped fella. Seems the wolf population is down in my area, not sure whhhyyyyyy, but it's letting the deer come back.
This chocolate top is the one I'm after this weekend, what say you fellas on his age?

Pretty nice buck Osky.

Looks like a 4.5 year old.

Solid mid-150's buck.

Can't judge his circumferences.

Love the chocolate colored antlers.

Is he rubbing on black spruce ?

I would have shot him when he was a spike. Meat's meat.

I can tell everything from this photo. Without doubt he is a four year old, born late in the year and was picked on for being of small size. He didn't have a easy life, his father left him immediately and his mother was strung out on winter peas and was nonetentive. He goes by the name Chet in the deer world and is a romantic. He likes long walks in the rain/snow and loves staring at the sky. He has a sign by his bedding area that says, shoot chickens and ride cowboys. Not sure what that means.....


I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

I think he's younger than I thought.
I have been reading up on antler color and a lot is hereditary according to what I can find. Maybe that's wrong?
I have a tall sweeping eight point with chocolate antlers too, and then the large heavy 10 point that has pale antlers. I've got a couple six points of opposite colors as well.

See that,

His body looks smaller in that 2nd pic.

He looks like an old pot-bellied sway back in

that first pic.

his beams look shorter in the 2nd photo.

his head looks very large in the 2nd pic.

Looks are deceiving, so maybe he is only a 3.5 Y.O

Nice buck if you take him this year

I think he is Wall...

Thanks Rick... I like the forehead and face color along with the chocolate antlers so he will make my wall.
