Great buck !!

You all know that ages from Southern deer are not as accurate due to their environmental conditions, not as much seasonal extremes I think they say. Never the less great buck again!

When you get as old as we are Lewis, you can kill ‘em with a car if you want to ! ;-) Nice buck !

I'm always curious as to the true accuracy of those things. I still occasionally send one in just to check and they state the accuracy is really good...like 90% or so. However, lots of other research suggest otherwise. I feel like they tend to always be on the older side with the estimates personally but still like to get some type of feedback. I also keep jawbones to compare as well. Only way to tell reliably is trail cam pics though IMO. Congrats on a nice deer.

I was very familiar with this buck and through years of trail cam pictures and several close encounters while scouting and hunting I knew he was over 41/2 had it not been for a crazy water bottle squeak on a hot August evening I would have had a great opportunity at 15 yards during Tennessees first velvet season retrieving this guy almost got me he went off a bluff covered with snow on ice Good luck Lewis

Very nice Lewis. That is an old buck for sure. The oldest free range buck I ever saw was aged at 8.5. The oldest tagged deer that we knew the age of exactly was a doe at 11.5

That is an awesome buck that you killed
