I see why you are stumped. He looks different ages to me as well. I'm going to go with he looks good for his age. I guess him at 4.5. If you like him, shoot him.

His huge neck and head tells me older then 3.5, but I agree his body looks 3.5

No history with him?

Quality of the pic goes a long way to determine the age. Was just saying post the originals and not screen shots and you will get better answers. Sorry to ruffle your feathers.

Well if that's the case (2500 acres to hunt), assume he is young and keep hunting.

I’m gonna go against the grain here. I think he’s 5+. Last two pics swayed me from my initial thought.

I don't think he's any younger than 4.5. And the last 2 pics are really what have brought me to that conclusion. You'll have a better feel when you see him in person though. More often than not game cams alter their appearance.

In your situation, err on the side of too young. You have a whole ranch to yourself and its super early.
