I was just watching QDMA and they said virtually everything you said......like looking at a 1.5 year old deer is like a teenager......Bucks also have the biggest "antler jump" in terms of size from ages 3.5 yrs to 4.5 yrs.

Found these websites with pics to help age on the hoof.....
Field Guide from Wildlife Enterprises
Quality Deer Management Association
Really like this last website/powerpoint....
