Default Is this a young buck?

Some of my friends say this buck is a shooter(3.5 year or older).But I don't think he is.

Appears to be a 5 point, why would you go exclusively off age rather than antlers?

If he is a 2.5 or 3.5 year old 5 point, he may be a cull buck by some people's standards.

The reason I go on age is because the younger they are the more potential they have.If that deer was four or five he would be a cull buck for me,but he is still young.
