All 4 photos are of the same buck in Edwards county. Do you think he is an old deer with a Roman nose or a younger deer with a deformed nose? [Linked Image]

My understanding is roman nose comes with being broken/injured most likely from fighting. It may come with age, but isn't necessarily limited to old/mature deer.

We have seen young deer with the same trait.

In august (the date on photos) I would want to wait a while before I made a guess on how old he was. My initial guess would be 4+

I always heard it was from an injury.
