Nyles, don't claim to be very knowledgeable on southern deer, but i might bet you one of those catfish dinners he's 4 years old. look at the angle the horns come out of his head. pretty low angle. on young deer, the angle of the horns where they exit the head are much closer together, like the dead one pictured on the ground. he looks 3 to me. look at the depth of the body and how the head looks a little small by comparison. granted the side view doesn't look like an old roman nose fella, but not all deer get that. but the front views are different. he's got me a little on the fence. but i'm bettin there's just as good a chance he's 4 as 3. again, southern deer aren't my specialty, and it's been a long time since i've killed one that size. as a side note, i'll drink almost any kind of beer you buy with that catfish dinner!
