Also how much more do you think this buck will grow? Love the split brow tines and the thickness of the base.

At this point, he wont grow a whole lot more. He will develop the blunt ends of the tines into points (develop a mental image of the tines tapering into points) and start to harden out. As far as mass and length/width, hes about finished up. Theyre about three to four weeks away from starting to lose the velvet, depending on your location. IMO

2 1/2 year old, looks like a narrow spread maybe 14 inches and deduct the brow kickers puts him low 120's.
IMO

Nice buck..probably a 2 year old..
Looks like a great candidate for next year or maybe the year after that if you can hold out that long!
I would say he might make P&Y this year.

Yeah, looking at that deer's face I am thinking 2.5 yr old. He'll score p&y, but he won't get past mid 130's.

In two years that deer could explode into a huge 180 class deer. Has all the potential in the world. Split brows 5 up on main beams. Don't shoot this deer. It's your future booner.

Exactly buddy, I plan on passing on him there is a nice typical 10 pt that I want this year! Passed on him 2nd to last day last season, just hope he is around this year. Only put my camera out a week ago on a known trail so hopefully he shows up. If he does I will surely post.

Do you think this is the same buck from last year or an offspring of this buck. I cannot tell

Those are definitely two different deer. As for the first I'd say a really crazy 2 and a half or 3 and a half. Nothing older. Still fairly thin in the neck and chest. If you have a good place and can wait would be a monster. If you can't is still a great deer either way. Grats
