I would say 2.5 years old but without a better picture of his body I may be wrong.

agreed with everyone above. don't think body makes too much of a difference with what can be seen in the picture. head, rack, and from what you can see of the body in your picture, i'd say 2.5yrs is very accurate. maybe add another half a year

Not trying to be a smart arse but that would make the deer 3 YO. Considering that he was killed in hunting season with bone on his head are you insinuating that he was born during hunting season. All deer harvested during hunting seasons of October thru January will always be aged in 1/2 years.

How do you add "another half a year"?

The buck looks to be 2 1/2 years old... an easier one to guess if he's not an abnormality.

I would guess 3 1/2, but 2 1/2 might be right.
