It will be easier to tell when he is on his side and his mouth is open.

I was guessing more like 2 1/2. deer are all different sizes across the North America though. A 2 1/2 year old in missouri isn't going to have the body of a 2 1/2 year old up in canada. plus the nutrition of the deer is important consideration too. He might be 3, but to me, it looks like this Dec he'll just turn 3.

happens to me all the time.lol its just one of my pet pives to see a pic of a buck in july and someone say its something and a half because we hear and a half all the time on tv but those are pics in the fall.

yea i pretty sure its 3 in the pic middle of summer so the big brute neck and front end isn't there yet. his back is not sagging and he's fairly straight from chest through the belly no pot belly. the race horse look. a pic in nov would be easier to get an idea of age.
