How old do you think he is?

I apologize for the quality of the cam pic, but this is the only pic I have been able to get of this buck in 2 years. He is only a 6pt and lives in suburban hill country in SW PA. We saw him running with 2 other bucks last January during a late antler-less season, but he alluded us this year. In this part of the state we have a 3 point to one beam rule for harvesting bucks unless you are junior, under 16 license holder. So he is an illegal deer for adult hunters. I am hoping to use some Beast tactics to get on this buck for a junior hunter next archery season.

I personally think the buck is 4+ in age, but seeing him running with 2 other bucks has my wondering. Has anyone else noticed behavior like this?

4.5
You can fool some of the bucks, all of the time, and fool all of the bucks, some of the time, however you certainly can't fool all of the bucks, all of the time.

You have what I call the chest chunk which starts to become noticeable @ 3.5.
However his head looks a little blockier than 3.5...

4.5+

Going by his melon I'd say he's over 4.5 (his forehead looks real wide to me). His body tells me he's younger (3.5 at most).
