3.5, maybe. Little bit of paunch to the belly but his neck is skinny. Also, no white in the right places to indicate a really old deer.

I give him 4. He could be three, but you don't see that belly and sway back on many 3's.

I don’t think he’s even close to 3. I’m going with a 5 year old. He will fill out his neck closer to rut.

Skinny summer neck will trick most novice deer managers every time.
My guess is he’s long past 3 and closer to 7 than 4.

add me to the 4yr old camp. I've noticed over the years that the 4 yr olds have a unique young but old look. 4 is technically the hump where their body stops using up all the protein and the horns can start to really flourish. So you get a lot of the older deer definition like the brisket and the pot belly with the swayed back. But then they still have a youngish looking face not too many wrinkles and not quite as much shoulder fat/muscle so the neck looks a little long.

I'd say give him another year if you can

Exactly, That deer is min 5 but prob a summertime 6. neck is thin(which they all are in the summer) but transitions into top of brisket. Callouses on knees, slight sway in back. I also like looking how they set on their hooves to determine age but can't see feet.
