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 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.

    • Not nails but worse, they are self tappers from the metal roofing:)  Sorry, I need to take the angle grinder out there and zip those off this weekend.  Funny you bring up the name kabob, that is actually the name of one of them if they don't produce:)   Here is a short list of the names my kids came up with:   - Kabob - Soup - Nugget - Fried - Drummie - Pot Pie   I cant remember the others but you get the point...    
    •   I agree that in the long run, the very best thing that could be done is to completely repeal the ACA and then continue to reduce government involvement. The problem with that is this is a messed caused by government that would become a disaster at least short term for some folks if it were immediately repealed. At this point, government created the mess so it has an obligation to fix it with as little damage as possible to the people.
    •   No, I'm not totally discrediting any preventative measures, in fact I have stated time and time again that it is the best  safeguard against MOST diseases and other ailments. The fact though is that it will not safeguard you against EVERY ailment. You even go so far as to predict that you will still get cancer in your lifetime. If your preventative measures are a cure all, why do you believe you will still get cancer?   No matter how diligent you are with preventative measures you probably will not keep every ailment at bay. All I am saying is that when you are older you will find this out. I haven't seen anyone live forever yet.
