From those 2 pics..I would agree with you 5.5 yr old guess. More pics and that might change.

Looks 4 in one pic and 5 in the other to me


High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

Evidently, I am terrible at aging. What am I missing?

Lord knows I'm no pro and I would defer to STX, but from those picks I don't see anything that makes me think 5 YO. He looks young to me.

I think he has a much deeper chest then that pic is showing do to his head being down.
I'd like to see some more pictures of him standing with his head up.

Unfortunately these are the only 2 pics we have of his whole body. Normally he stays on the outside of the camera view. We have many pictures of partial head.

Looks 5 to me. I’d kill him. I don’t think he’ll ever be that great. He’s a little deer.
