Default Guess the age of this buck

got an alive and dead pics of him. guess an age then I'll tell you the real answer. We had a biologist look at his teeth and give us a good estimate.

The alive picture hes a year younger then the dead pics. Take a guess at age. I'm curious to know if anyone can be close.

I'm going to guess 2 and a half when he was shot. In the live picture his antlers sure look like the antlers of an older buck, but his body definitely says otherwise.

The gray hair around his cheeks and ears easily puts this buck over 5 years old.

Tough to say, he could have been on the decline. Easiest thing to do is get a tooth ager, they tend to take the guess work out of it if you are really interested.
