Default Older buck?

I say he is a older deer like 4.5 or 5.5 years old unlike my cousin who doesn't think that. To me he has a very gray face and has a big head on him. What does everyone think. I am located in Southwestern Wisconsin too.

He is young.
Look at how straight his back, and stomach is, not pot bellyed like an old buck.
Plus his legs look to long for his body.
Looks like a young buck, with a good food source.

Is the date correct on the camera ? He really doesn't appear to have his winter coat yet. I would like to see him in a pre rut picture, I'm thinking he could be a 4.5 who is run down from the rut and this lovely winter we are having.

3.5 at the oldest. His back isn't sagging, and neither is his belly, two characteristics of an older deer.
