From the looks of his size and how the antlers are I would say he's at least 3 yrs. maybe 3.5 yrs old.
In the picture the antlers are still kind of pointing up, but a 4 or 5 year old will have his antlers more or less horizontal.

He's still a nice looking buck for however old he is!!

antler shape is genetics and usually repeats the general shape just more mass every year up to around 7-8 years old then rack starts to reduce. Obviously, most bucks never see 7-8 years. This is how sheds can be traced back to the same buck every year.
