    Doesn't look like an oldie to me to be honest,I've just had one dropped in to me that was a bit wasted(26lb)and it turns out he had a calcified(sp) lump on his aitch bone,and a reddish tinge to the vellums,he also had no fat around the kidneys.I turned it away,and told the lad to dispose of it appropriately,I wish I had taken a pic now.Yours may have something hidden that has wasted him,and you may find it when you butcher him.

    Absolutely a yearling. The first 3x teeth are too white. Don't forget that they still had their baby teeth at the front until a few weeks ago. He may also be slightly wasted because that very first tooth is still busting through!!

    It looks like a yearling with problems. Tread with care on this 1. cheers Hootsman

    Looks like a yearling. What was his weight and was it significantly less than typical for the area? A yearling from a Scottish forestry I shoot at this time of year would be typically 9-11kg clean whereas 13-16kg from a farmland..

    Weight of cleaned out carcass is 20lb. when butchered it was good apart from a slight backbone kink.
    Conclusion after all considered. A young beast slightly under nourished.
    Thank you all for your replies
