OK then, I say its a 2.5 yr old buck, northern deer get larger bodied sooner, or the healthy one's due, , due to the harder winters you have!

That's easily a 3 year old deer, no less. Not mature yet but not a 2 year old for sure. Large bodied with a small (but not tiny) 8-point rack is typical of a 3 year old deer in the north.

Definitely. It took me years to pattern deer ages in my region. People always have their go-to methods for aging deer but the reality is the only way is to send a tooth to ministry.
