That's a tough call. I'd say 3.5 yo studs. If you let them walk this year, will a neighbor shoot them? Most likely. But if you let them walk and they make it through the year, they'll be monsters for sure! Like I said, tough call. Not sure what I'd do... but it's a good problem to have!

I'd say the one in the back is a 4 year old for sure. I'd let em have it if it were me. I hunt just south of you in Mayo and those are studs for that area

Shoot or let them grow one more year.... they are either 3.5 or 4.5, we know there are a few other deer that are bigger but these two are interesting because we see them during season where the rest are hit and miss.

The back deer is over 5, the front one is a 4 year old. Both have bad knees and well developed chests but the back one has more muscle structure and definition. It will become very obvious in the fall as they pack on weight for the rut and their necks swell. The back deer would be #1 on my hit list. And if you want to put more mass and length on all your deer, you need to get on an aggressive protein feeding plan. It will help to have much more growth and health with your herd in the future.

You can equate shooting deer to chasing women. I have no regret of the women I've caught or deer I've shot. I only regret the ones that I passed on.
