Default Help me age this buck - should be s stud next year

I think this buck is right around 4.5 but I'm not sure if he is that old. These are the best pictures I have of him. These were all taken last week.

He is middle-aged for sure but he is very long legged/lanky even for a rutted down buck. I would have a difficult time calling him 4.5 in those pics, so 3.5 yr old is what I am seeing.

I think you may be stretching it saying 4.5 because you are excited about shooting him next year. He is definitely 3 not sure about 4. Cut the head gear off the pic and I bet you would call him 3.

How old would you call that buck in front of him in the last picture? I was calling him 3 which is part of the reason I was calling the other one 4. Also I had a couple of pre-rut pictures of him and he was a lot bigger which also let me to say he was 4.

No I don't. I looked thru what I had and couldn't find any. He never really came out during the day until last month. 99% of the shots I have of him are at night. He's a smart one.
