Agree with the 3yo estimates. He is young and will be a dandy in a couple years.
Regarding the "spreading his genes", most bucks will impregnate one to 2 doe a year, and a 3 yo will be lucky to get 2. Unless ratios are way out of whack, genetic studies don't favor spreading his genes around much. Some, yes, but not much.
Reality is most doe come into estrus around the same time so by the time he latches on to one doe and breeds her over the course of a day or two, he doesn't have time to catch another as other bucks have already latched on to them. Again ratios being out of line can change this a little, but even then, it isn't likely a buck will get more than 2 doe a year.
