I would say 2.5 will be a very good buck with time.

Me too, hope he doesn't wonder too far. The 8pt I wanted got shot about a mile up the road by my neighbor behind me. Dang Rut.

That's the one the neighbor killed. 18.5 inches wide 160lbs dressed. He pulled a tooth to age, he guessed 4.5-5.5 but hadn't heard back yet. Oh well. Ill try to post his pic if I can figure out how.

Default see if this works

This was a 6pt last year that had a broken left front leg. He healed around Jan 2017 and was able to walk without a limp around March. He grew into a nice 8pt. He was killed November 18, 2017 by my neighbor about a mile from where he spent all last year and all this summer/early fall. Right after he shed his velvet I never saw him again. I had him on camera 2016 and I think I had him 2015 but not sure. I have another 6 pt that looks just like his rack from last year. Maybe he will mature too.
Neighbor is getting him mounted.

Neighbor got (above) it aged by a biologist. 3.5 years old. That was my initial thought. He would have made a good one but nobody is willing to let them age.
