Default how old is this buck

the body looks like a 1.5 year old but in my area of northern MI bucks are usually spikes their first year, i've never seen a deer with this kind of rack so young. usually 2.5 year olds are still 6 points, just hardwood forests up here, no agriculture at all. hopefully the picture loads

Certainly too big a body for a yearling. Looks to be a healthy 2.5 year old. or perhaps a 3.5, no older than that. Wish you had more pictures of him to get a better idea.

I would say that's a healthy 2.5 yr old. I've hunted northern WI where there isn't near the ag fields of south central where I'm from, but he would look real nice next year....if the wolves don't get him.

2.5 would be my guess. notice the straight lined back and no swaggering belly either, he doesnt seemed to be developed yet, give him a couple of more years.

I'd say about a 3 to 3.5. Good buck though.
