Really I can't get him older than 3.5 years old. I just can't see him being mature.

I think he's 4.5 but I don't think I would pass him up if he is not on a high fence property. somebody's gonna shoot him and it might as well be you!!!!

Im not seeing 3.5 at all. He looks 4.5 for sure now. In several more weeks he may look more like 5.5 once his neck and shoulders fill in leading up to the rut.

Just wondering, on people that say 3.5 what are you looking at? Give us some feedback...

This sight has been invaluable on learning deer these last 3/4 years I've been on. I love these threads. I've definitely been wrong before lol. I personally have a 3.5 yr old that I and many would call 4.5 at times but I for sure know he 3 bc of his ear and he has grown up there.

I see a pretty solid neck for early September, the face isn't long. It's blocky. Usually when they get as wide as they are long they are getting some age. I see some shoulder hump. Profile shows a full bodied belly and rounded hips and everything with his rack says mature.. (Not that I go on the rack much, but it is a characteristic that adds to my thought process on aging a deer)
Looks like a stud to me. If he showed up on my place I would guess 4.5-5.5, leaning towards 5.5.. Just a gut feeling. Great deer and keep us posted on him

I agree. Was also wondering is this was a Texas buck or somewhere else? Nice buck BTW.

I would put this deer at least 4.5

In the daylight pic he looks young but the night pictures he looks mature.
