Howdy EastTexasDroptine, first let me say I love all the pics you post, keep them coming...
There's only one way to age a Whitetail Deer accurately and that's by their teeth.
A deer can't be aged by it's weight, size, antlers or coloring.
So anything anyone says about a deers age without using their teeth to determine the age is merely a guess as to how old that particular deer is.
Here is a link if you're interested in seeing how a deer is aged by it's teeth.

My GUESS on your 10 pointer in the picture is 3 1/2 years old.

Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the outcome of the vote.
