41/2 + based on the sagging back. Not many 3 year olds have a sagging back in my area. His neck does look a little skinny for a 4 year old deer, but then again, this is a summer pic, he hasn't begun to bulk up his neck muscles yet.

I would have to say 3.5 or 4.5 as well. His face looks a little narrow, so I might lean towards 3.5 years of age, but I am not familiar with the size of the herd in your area. I would wait at least a year and then harvest him and check his age by looking at his teeth.

I would put my money on 4.5, I have personally never seen a deer younger than that have that much sway in his back and that big of a gut. His neck isn't swollen b/c he hasn't began to build it up yet.

I would go with 3 1/2 but I'm supprised you saw him. Usually after 2 years they get realllllly smart and you don't see them. At least not around here. Nice rack hope you get him.
