Default How Old?

Starting getting out the trail cam again. Got a pretty good looking buck in a few photos. I'm quite certain he is the 10 point I got on film last year, but man did he grow a lot this year.

Two questions:
How old???? My guess he is 4.5 years old. However, my knowledge of aging is limited.
What score??? Again, my knowledge of scoring is limited so I'm not gonna even guess.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know if I could pass him up regardless of age or score. lol

Hard to tell with those pictures, but I would guess younger than that. Aim your camera either north or south and avoid the sun glare.

Hard to tell from those 2 photos. 3.5 most likely but possibly 4.5 max. low 130's. Not a lot of tine length on any of them if the photos isn't giving us a bad angle.

3.5 max. Still though, a respectable buck from that angle but be aware, bucks always look wider and bigger from behind the rack than they do facing you.
