Help, I took this buck several weeks ago and I need help aging him, I forgot to remove the jawbone for getting a correct age, what do y'all think?

You'll likely have a more accurate estimate than anyone else with only those two pictures. Decent body size so at least 3 is all I could guess

Based solely on the first pic, old enough, maybe 5.5 or better? Hard to say for sure. Score mid 120s or so. Great looking buck, congratulations! You may never get the tag off, though. laugh

That sagging skin on the jawbone indicates older then 5.5. The neck meeting up into the brisket is yet another clue.

I'd say somewhere around 5 IMO -- hard to score but probably around 130? Nice buck!

Definitly over 5.
I suck at judging deer horns though.
The way I know to shoot one is when I see it with no binos and whisper "holy cow"
Im going to guess 130 though
