I just put this camera and feeder up about a week and a half ago and the deer have already found it(Dates & time are wrong). I'm not an expert at aging deer, so a little help would be appreciated. My guess is 2-2.5 years old. Any experts that want to chime in?

I moved the camera closer last week, so hopefully I will have better pics when I pull the card this weekend.

I would say 2.5 due to The height of waist and how the neck meets the body, but I'm new to aging. Also the head is elongated so the deer is young.

Id say 2 or 3. Still has a fairly skinny neck and not much of a brisket

Summer is one of the hardest times to age deer for me and a lot of others. Once they rub out things get a little easier in the aging game. If you have history of the deer then summer time can be a little easier than when you have no prior history on them. at least IMO

I guess I was pretty close with my guess. These guys definitely won't be shot by me this year, but hopefully the rut will bring in something decent. This is a brand new place for me, so I have no clue what size deer I will be seeing.

They look like young deer to me. 2.5 at the most.
