    Sorry for the photos not showing up, but I won't pay photobucket a dime. I guess I will have to find a new way.

    Cementum annuli is the best way to age a deer. I meat hunt kill a few slick heads every year. Until then it's a mature buck that I believe to be 4.5 and older. Easier to tell a 3.5 from a 4.5. 4.5 and older gets tuff to tell age difference.

    That's one heck of a 8 pointer and I wouldn't be surprised to see it go 160's. I'd take him over a 160 12 pointer any day.

    Here is how I see it, if I like a buck I will shoot it regardless of age as long as in satisfied with it, if my neighbor wants to pass on a 140+ buck because he is young then good for him, it gives me a better chance of killing him

    I'd go with the 8 point and let the 12 point spread his genes for another year, if it's on my personal property. but mainly go with the age and how I would want to manage the deer where I hunt.

    I'd guess him at 145". He's a hoss.
     
  13. 120+

    120+ 12 pointer

    I'll say 140. They always look a little bigger from the rear view.
