    My guess is right at 4.5 yrs old

    I would say it’s 3.5 based on the more pointed nose and lack of mass of the antlers.

    Ist glance I figured 4 1/2

    I’m gonna say 4 years old.

    I agree with Patrick on the facial features. Antler mass has little to do with it. Body is slender, not heavy built as older bucks.

    2.5 to 3

    Loaded question. Up here in Northern Indiana I’d call it a 2.5 to 3.5 but south it could be an older buck.

    I would have to guess at about 3.
