3 1/2 to 4, it is better to try and judge a deer's age by his body shape characteristics or pull the jaw bone.

Without seeing the body, I would say 3.5 or 4.5, he is as big as he would have gotten, maybe a few more inches next year.

That deer has a big rack for only dressing out at 140 pounds.
4 1/2 sounds about right....may even a little older.

By taking a closer look, I would say he was born June 3, 2003 (10:33am)
