Any guesses on this one. Nothing unexpected as far as I am concerned.

15" length and 6" bases

Nice pose! No idea on the age, but I saw one just like that in Whitehorse last September. The splayed horns seem more common in Oregon than other places.

Balz was correct 5.5 years old. I thought he may have been a little older, but not a total surprise. I have 1 more I will post in another thread.

Interesting.

This buck was also 5.5.

Just curious how you aged that antelope to 5.5 years old?

Antelope are easily aged up to 4.5 years by examining the replacement of their lower incisors during the fall hunting season. After 4.5 a tooth would have to be removed and sectioned, etc. to determine the animals age.

Thanks Bryce. I figured you must have had a tooth sectioned to get the age to 5.5.

Nice antelope! Was he in the pine trees when you shot him?

Being in those trees probably contributed to his regal status
