Do you think this warrior is young or old?
« on: November 12, 2017, 09:50:25 AM »
Very even both side, trying to decide if he has room to grow, or regressing. Sure is hungry, hit Apple pile 6 times in 22 hours. Have to correct am and pm on cam, have them reversed.

Looks to be an older buck to me.....though his body is not as big as I would expect.  Could be the pics...or he is lean with not a lot of fat on him.

Looks like he has been through a war, ear is always hanging, scars all over, there are three bucks comparable or bigger in area with tons of does. I think old tired warrior

Definitely an old warrior that should be laid to rest because he is being bullied by all of the bigger bodied bucks. Let me know if you need help thinning your herd. :chuckle:

He spends about 10-15 min each visit up to 6 times a day. Exhausted and tired, hopefully his days are numbered

Definitely a shooter !! With blacktails it's not all about the number of tines there's slot more to them for me like
Maturity
Mass
Roman nose
To me I look for a mature buck , he might be a 2 point and never get bigger but if he is mature looking that's the deciding factor for me !

Old fella for sure, IMO may not make it another year. Ears are drooping, usually not a good sign :dunno:
