I have no idea how many 4 year olds.

I hunt about 23.5 square miles, with around 10-12 dpsm...if we say there are 11 dpsm. That would be about 260 deer. A biologist who put a lot of time and study into the deer herd on this state forest told me, year in year out, there's about one 3.5+ per square mile. Rounded up, that would be 24 3.5+ year old bucks with a total of 260 deer each year
