the thing to remember about Texas and midwest deer are that they are either "raised" or in OK and Nebraska they have thousands of acres of crops which grows some huge bucks. I wouldnt be suprised if that buck isnt just 2.5 years old. But it is probably 4-5 years old. Its amazing what they can look like with a really good diet.
In the Northeast there is way more forests and so many places for the deer to hide. Deer like that dont get shot often. You're lucky if you even see one at all. They are wicked smart and once a deer up here reaches 3.5 years old they have a 99% chance of never being killed.
Its a whole different ball game up here than it is in the flat open farm lands of the midwest.
Up until this year it has been shotgun only. But I used my 30.06 this year and havent seen the benefit. The forests are too thick and you can rarely have more than a 100yd shot. There are alot of farms around here but like I said the deer are smart and dont go walking out to them when hunting season starts.
Very nice buck. I would be very proud of that.
You and your brother are some funny looking peeps. :flipoff:
