Default Mature buck?

I had a close encounter with this buck on Thursday morning. I'm thinking he's a 3 1/2 year old. Who would agree with this? I'm looking at his sagging belly, and general body size. Sorry, not the best pic.Maybe someone can lighten it up some for a better look.

I would say 3 1/2 is a good estimate on that buck (judging by his body). Is his G3 really long or is that just a twig or something?

That is a twig that's giving it that look. He's a very symetrical 8pt. I'm hoping it can be lightened up, I'm not real good at these things.[&o]
