If I've learned anything from these threads over the years I'd say that deer is between 1.5 and 7.5

He's 4 or older. That's a 2 year old next to him and deer don't put on that kind of weight in 1 year.

You can't tell anything from that angle other than weight difference.

Been pretty good conditions the last couple years...I could see that as a yearling and a 3.5, but really was thinking 4.5. What I would call a middle aged LF deer and one that would get a good look at my lease. On my ranch that guy would likely get another year, or two.

If it's a place I was trying to manage long term I would shoot him his g-1 are very weak compared to his 2 and 3 would not want him passing that on. If I was not able to or trying to manage long term let him go another year or so
