    The longer the nose the better. The stub noses are the yearlings. But the more you hunt the more you can tell them apart.

      Check out the head/snout/face. Young deer have a more rounded, snubby face. Older deer have a longer, thinner, more angular face.

        Shane and love are both right also body size counts, the bigger the body it's probably and old doe.

          Ears, older does have long big ears and their legs are much longer than a yearling.

              In addition to looking at the head, the hind legs of a yearling will usually be longer than the front legs.

                I shot 2 yearlngs at 205 yd last fall thinking they were doe's. What I look for is big doe small doe. Anyway the yearling is best eating.

                  i agree with you Del for an older gentleman that i know who loves the tenderness of the younger deer.

                    Look at the nose. The longer the better. If it appears stubby don't shoot but then again, the young ones taste the best.
