Need some help aging this deer. I feel like he's 4.5 and wouldn't mind him making it another year to see if the main beams can develop a little more but if he's 5.5+ then I don't know how much more room he will have to grow.

Edit: The pic at night was about 2 weeks prior to the day time which was right around/before the rut so it might help with the body size

I think that is a 4.5 year old deer. Give him one more year

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

I'd say 4. Nice wide rack. Neck and belly starting to get deep.

3.5 maybe a bit older but I doubt it. Looks a little leggy to me and has that younger deer body configuration. If you let him go another year I would sure like to see him again.
2 years out he will probably be a stud!
