I received the Age results back from my Iowa Whitetail today from

“The cementum-annuli analysis has determined that the age of “Burkart Iowa 9pt” is 5.5 years. ”

A nice mature buck.

Another good example where you can't just look at the antlers and determine age. Most would've probably guessed him at 2.5 or 3.5 as an Iowa buck. Body looks nice and husky.

The goal in Iowa! Congrats!

Thanks everyone. I actually thought he was much older and on the downhill side. I’m surprised that a healthy 5.5 year old Iowa buck was only 126”. I guess not all bucks can be giants.

Genetics are the most important of the three
