Default Age of this Buck

Recently I found that I have a decent sized buck on the property I hunt... I guessed his age to be roughly 3 years old... For those of you with more experience what would you say his age to be?

I doubt he's any older than that and if you're in a good agricultural area he may only be 2 1/2.

I will say 2.5 this fall, his antlers will look a lot different when the velvet comes off. As for as shooting him that is up to you. He is a nice buck.
