Default two bucks from MN aging help

here are two that I have on camera i have 5 more from my property but they are all 1.5 olds for sure what do you think about these
The first I would think is 1.5 but has a filled out nose so thinking maybe 2.5 with small horns
the second I think is either 2.5 or 3.5 what are your thoughts

I agree with the rest. I see no muscle mass through their shoulders. The second picture though looks like he'll be a dandy in three or four years. Keep record of him through the years.

The second deer is only 1.5, and he is not that big for a 1.5. But then again the deer could be smaller in your area than most.

1.5 year old deer range in size just like 5 year olds... The main thing that I noticed from the picture is the lack of muscle definition that deer get as they get older. Carbon Slinger is %100 percent correct.

One last thing, to get a true answer, you need to show the pic to people that are familiar with the deer in the area.
