Here's a compilation of videos of the bucks on the hill above the house. Don't tell me "There ain't no deer" in northcentral Pennsylvania -- https://forestandfield.blogspot.com/201 ... night.html

I liked how your video went from small to big. How old would that 10 point be in your neck of the woods Woody? or as us Canadians call them 5 pointer.

Hard to say without looking at his teeth, but I'm guessing he's 4 1/2 because the habitat here is overbrowsed and the soils are acidic. If he's got good genes and wandered here from an area of limestone soils (there are some 4-5 miles away), he might be 3 1/2. I'm guessing the 7 and 8 point bucks are the same age. Deer antlers are really dependent on nutrition, take a look at this post -- https://ecosystems.psu.edu/research/pro ... verage-joe

Nice collection of the local boys. They are all handsome fellows, even the guys with little racks.
