Its going to be hard to score and age him based off of just one picture.

He's def mature id say 5 1/2 possibly 6, going off of his over all Girth, thick neck, and seamless brisket.

Once again it would be hard to score him with out a side view. his short tines are going to hurt him though. He may make 125-130

Type of habitat helps with this typically. Not the best pic for score and age. Head at upward angle doesnt let you see full length of tines. Head and neck isnt at true broadside. With that said I still fell its safe to say 6.5 plus and 105" area. Angle of head hurts with accurate scoring estimate the most, but my quick second glance comes across as this. Maybe his tines are longer than pics show. If so score estimate could go up by couple of inches. Great deer though hope you get him.

Only pic I have of him. I agree its hard to score due to angle. I for one could care less on score but to see a mature whitetail with a big body is always special.

100%! Some of my favorite kills are the ones I could never connect the dots with fully and connect with as old retired warriors.

If you kill him and I hope you do! Collect the two botton middle incisors off with tissue attached and send off for cementum testing. Would be curious to see the answer to this estimation test. If you happen to do this, post results. It would be interesting to see how close some if the estimations are.

The lack of tine length will really hurt the score, I would guess no more than 110
