Front 1/3 and back 2/3 don't match. I'd say 4.5 or so on the back 2/3 - back is straight, not that much belly but fuller than a 3.5 would be. But the front 1/3? Lots of neck, some sag, lots of brisket, face and nose looks old. Rack is that of (usually) an older buck. I need more pics or seeing him in person in 6 weeks.

Head is to blocky to be any younger than 5. Dished or cupped in forehead is also found more on mature deer.

I have him pegged as old but have not put a number on him so these comments help!

Older guy -- but some pics in October/November would help for sure.

Not looking at his rack and just his head/body, I'd say he's 5+.

Where is this guy at? Might help in determining age depending on his area/surroundings.

5.5 or maybe even 6.5


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

In this picture you see a little sag under the jaw, and more of a hatchet-butt. Full chest and neck. Back is very straight, though, and while the belly is full, it's not real pot-belly yet. I'm going 5.5 but 6.5 wouldn't surprise me.

Gravity appears to have taken its toll on his male-parts. I'm thinking this guy is O-L-D old.
