    Well I bought some land about 1 1/2 years ago with deer hunting in mind.
    My first year I got a doe and missed a buck.

    This year I got a doe during archery and saw a buck on the last day of archery at 8:05 am and did not take a shot cause it was to risky. So the next day first day of rifle season the same buck walked by at 7:44 am and I had a perfect shot with my rifle. Would like to get an idea on a score and age if any could help me on this. Thanks !

    I would guess him 120ish. Age is tough but a wild guess would be 3 or 4 depending on where he's from based on mass. .02

    My guess would be 2.5-3 and 110-115. Great to get one on your own place. Nice first.

    Id say MAX 3.5, more likely 2.5 based on its neck... but its hard to tell from those pics.
