First two are yearlings and the last two are year and a halfers? At least by Nebraska standards. You have some nice deer coming your way.

I think the first three will be 1 1/2 yrs this fall, and last one 2 1/2.

Fawn is a fawn and a yearling is 1 1/2 years old. First 3 are yearlings with the third being an early birth and the fourth is 2 1/2.

Nice pics.

I agree with prov none of these deer are older than year and a half.

I would say they are all year and halfers. When you look at the body, there are no appreciable differences. I would say that the last deer has good potential as he is sporting a decent rack for 1.5 years, but I dont think he is 2.5 due to body size/configuration and rack.

The last one is older than the first two. Look at his front shoulders, they are bigger than his hind quarters.

I would say they all would be in the year and a half range with the last maybe 2 years at best

1-3 I would say are year and a half, #4 could go either way but looks to be two and a half at the oldest.

I agree with most here, the first three are 1.5's and that last one is a 2.5.

Theyre all 1 1/2 year olds. The last one was probably born in May when it was supposed to be... the others were late born fawns to late bred mothers and are just a few monthes behing in development. In another year they will most likely all be equals.... the last one may have a little more potential. But any 2 1/2 in Minnesota should be looking better than that.

A good crop to look for in upcoming years.

The last one sure looks like a 2 1/2 year-old to me. He's enough bigger & his rack's started to widen out like they usually do as a two year-old. He could have been a later fawn from two years ago possibly.

I agree the others are different ages of yearlings, their body size could even depend on if they were a single fawn vs. a twin or triplet.

i say the first three are 1.5. and the last one is a 2.5 because his bases are thicker.

    • It's a fat chick too! Nice pictures eyeguy!!
    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
