In recent years, there has been tremendous interest in trophy management for white-tailed deer. Three things are needed to grow trophy deer: genetics, nutrition and AGE. Many are finally realizing the importance of allowing a buck to reach maturity.
This new field guide, from G&R Products, highlights key characteristics used to identify four age classes of deer: Young (1½ -2½ years of age); Middle-Aged (3 ½-4 ½ years of age); Mature (5 ½-6 ½ years of age); and, Old (7 ½+ year of age).
Four pictures of each age class are represented on a “split screen” format. This “split screen” format allows you to easily compare characteristics between the different age classes (without flipping pages).
The guide also contains information used to field score a buck while “on the hoof” utilizing the Boone and Crockett (B&C) scoring system. In addition, a photograph outlining the internal anatomy of a white-tailed deer is included in the guide. This photograph identifies the location of internal organs for proper shot placement.
Identify key characteristics used to age and score your next white-tailed deer before harvesting!
