The first deer is from Tensas parish and the other 2 are from piney woods in western Ouachita parish.

The first deer looks like he could be 3.5 years old. The next looks to be a very nice 1.5 but could very well be 2.5. the last deer looks to be a 2.5 year old. Very nice deer you have there!

these are my OPINIONS. Looking forward to others responses

Thanks Duckslayer, its always good to get different opinions. You were spot on with the first deer, he was killed and aged. After looking at many pics I believe the others are the same age. My problem is the velvet 8pt has so much bigger horns than any 31/2 deer ive ever seen.But if you compare their bodies they seem to be the same age. Here's a couple more pics.

Yea tinned his body says he is no older than 2.5 but mass at the base of the horns say 3.5. In my opinion, he is 2.5 with great genetics
