I would like some assistance aging this buck. I am guessing 5 1/2 plus, but would like some more opinions. Thanks

Picture is much too small to really give an accurate age... BUT...

Big saggy belly, looks to be a roman nose on him, and the horns are pretty decent. I'd say 4 or 5 1/2

I agree, he definately has a few years under his belt, I'd say at least 4 1/2.

I myself don't have much experience in aging bucks over the 3.5 year range. If I had to make a guess I would say 5.5 or older by looking at the sagging belly and the huge hind quarters, and deep chest. Just my .02
