Help me age these bucks....

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.

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 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

First three will be 1.5 year olds this fall, last one will be 2.5 years old this fall.

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.

without a doubt the last one is older. like DonBo said his front shoulders are bigger than his hind quarters

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.
