Default Age this deer if possible

This old fella has been around our club for a while and I was just wondering what you thought he could be age wise. I was thinking he is on the downside in his life and it looks like he has lost a few fights! LOL!

Just for fun! I only know how to do it with teeth and not pics.

I think he is an older deer. His neck/brisket area is real thick and his overall body is solid. I would guess more like 5 1/2 or more.

I was thinking he was pretty old myself because the deer out there haven't been hunted much and this guy is sly.

I'm thinking 3 1/2, like Ridge Runner said, he doesn't have that belly sway yet like older buck's get. At least in my area they do.
