Default Palo Pinto Co. Age guesses?

I've got access to some property to deer hunt this year. I have had cams running for a couple of weeks and this is the first 13" buck I've seen. He's fairly regular, but I'm having a tough time getting him past 3.5. Anyone think he may be 4+?

I had the same thought. No deer have been taken on this property in 10 years according to the LO, but it's only 160 acres and he claims the neighbors are absolutely non discriminate and allow everyone in their families and friends to hunt it. In fact, deer activity here has really picked up since general season opened, likely deer seeking refuge on this place. We've got a lot of 1.5y.o. bucks but this is the first I've seen that may be 4.5. Food sources are abundant there but the hogs seem to get everything leaving only scraps for the deer, so I'm wondering if he's older than 3.5, but not getting the food to fill out his body. Anyway, I'd be thrilled to take him based on antler size, I just hate to be part of the problem.

That deer is definitely not 4.5, 3.5 seems to me like its pushing it, probably younger than that.

I'm in agreement with everyone, I'm just sick because I know if he crosses the fence during daylight, he aint likely to make it back.
