Biologists aged him at 4.5 via his jaw bone.

It's a crapshoot... There is no way to know an exact age of a deer unless you have history with him. You can only call them pre-mature, mature and post mature after an educated guess.

At least 6.5. How many candles were in his last birthday cake? That would give you a better idea

The basis for cementum aging is the cyclic nature of cementum deposits on the roots of mammals’ teeth each year, which results in a pattern of “rings” in the tooth, like those formed in the wood of trees. A darkly staining ring, or “annulus”, is formed during winter on most all mammals. Abundant, lightly staining cementum is formed during the growth seasons of spring and summer. Some “experts” say these rings occur because of nutritional or seasonal stress, but since the same rings occur on human teeth, we doubt that is true. The purpose of these cementum layers on the roots of mammals’ teeth is to provide a new “rough” surface for the flesh in the jaw to adhere to the root of the teeth each year.

I found a place in Burnet Tx that performs this analysis, not sure the cost yet but I'm headed in the right direction, thanks!
