I would go with older middle age, around 4.5-5.5 yo, he isn't ancient but isn't young either.

Could be the way he is standing but he looks 5+ to me.

Looks like a really fat 3 yr old to me, possibly 4.

That "pose" makes his torso look really short but I would say 5.5. I have one similar we have been debating. Some have said 4.5 others have said 6.5 plus possibly post mature. Just depends on the particular pic. I'm gonna wait til I see him in person to determine(if I actually see him).

Some bucks you either need video or see in person to see their manerisms and how they react with other deer to try and determine age classification when you don't have history with them.

Another thought I will add is I have definitely had to re-adjust my aging scale in our area. All of our Coke co deer tend to be a year older than they appear on the hoof compared to other parts of the state I have hunted. Not sure what it is.

Every potential trophy buck needs "another year";)

He has been eatin good. He has a lot of body mass. This time of year is always harder for me to age older bucks, because theyre necks haven't bulked up yet. Kinda helps when you see that big ol 24 in neck and bulked up shoulders. Next month is always a better month to age them. Id say he is at least 5. Looks like he has a lot of body fat but his back is still straight. They start getting a little swag in the back around 7.
When I get on here my insane girlfriend thinks I'm tryin to hook up with chicks. I told her it's just a bunch of old geezers talking about huntin and not more crazy chicks.
