3.5 years old would be my guess too. Nice buck. Very good buck in a year or two. Great picture!!

It is a Michigan Buck.. But now from LOWER michigan where they barely ever have any snow and have grain fed giants.. This is the Far upper western end of the U.P. We have NO agriculture up here and the winters take there share. ANter Growth on this end is not up to par.

I'd guess 3.5 but probably 4.5

That's a swell buck for the north woods.
