Just a dart thrown but atleast 2-1/2 yrs old.

If you want to know how old the deer you shoot are then you really gotta learn to check their teeth for age. What you do is cut the gum straight back so that ou can see the rear teeth. You look at the wear of those rear teeth and make you determination by what you see.

Here's a few links to aging.....

I think the bowsite link explains things the clearest.

I'd say 2.5. His facial features / size say he's not a yearling.
