He has a full looking stomach but his face doose'nt appear to have filled out completely yet My guess is 3 1/2 yrs old.Also if you want to get him away from the night hunters move the feeder.

My heart would say let walk but I lie to myself all the time and know I would be flinging an arrow!! I like his character, might be a 3.5.

Look at what the cat drug in! Where the heck have you been hiding?

It's up to you if you want to shoot that deer. I would say 3 year old for sure. Not a bad deer at all. In all honesty....I would be hard pressed to trip the trigger on my release on that deer if given a golden opportunity.

Let him walk and work to get rid of the nighttime hunters in your area. You owe it to yourself to be patient and to protect your hunting area.

If you can't control the "night hunters" or other people hunting him, I'd shoot. Of course, I'm a sucker for bucks with weird kickers like his brow tines. Def 3.5 imo.
