I'd say 3.5. Nose doesn't look too Roman. Brisket's not too big. Little belly sag.

This is the buck I killed a few days ago and had to get a dog to find.
I was thinking he was 4 at the time, but I was looking back at a few pics my brother sent to me and now I'm not sure.

The date is accurate-ish, at least. Month and year for sure. It's my brother's camera so I can't attest to the day, but I'm sure it's likely correct.

4.5

Roman noses come from fighting. While it's more common in older bucks due to them being involved in more fights/actively participating in the rut, it shouldn't be used as a sign of age alone.

If the dates were accurate in the TC pics, I'd be wondering is he 4.5 or 5.5?

Like most, I'm guessing 4.5

Okay, looks like a consensus, 4 (and a half) years old. A little education for myself.

And even if he's not, that's a shooter deer where I hunt, and I would suspect where most of us hunt. Congratulations.
